Volvo XC60 Driver Thinks He’s Playing GTA, Weaves And Crashes

This crash should rank mighty high on anyone’s list of accidents that you react to by doing a facepalm. There was a red light and a large group of cars already stationary, yet the driver of that first-gen Volvo XC60 thought it was a good time to weave through traffic.

In the end, the inevitable happened, as the Swedish crossover crashed into some of the cars ahead. The only positive here is that the impact didn’t occur at high speed. Still, we don’t know if anyone was injured.

Aside from the fact that this took place on December 8th somewhere in Russia, no other information was released. Although we suspect that once authorities got involved, the driver at fault suffered all necessary legal consequences. The fact that the crash was caught on dashcam surely helped with that too.

So what causes somebody to drive so irresponsibly? Weaving through traffic is usually a sign of haphazard cockiness – that, or the Volvo was involved in a movie-like car chase, which didn’t seem to be the case. As for anybody wondering if this might have been an emergency, to that we say: so what? If you really need to get somewhere quickly, doing so safely beats not getting there at all.

In the end, had the cammer not moved out of the way, it’s possible that the XC60 might not even have fit through that initial gap. Eventually though, its driver was reminded that they weren’t on a motorcycle, nor were they in some super-fast and agile SUV.

    How do you know what the driver is thinking? How do you know the driver didn’t need to get to a hospital in a hurry, suffered a heart attack, is a diabetic and passed out from low blood sugar or just lost his brakes? It seems your investigative and journalism skills are only internet worthy. This website is quickly turning to crap.

      This is a “brilliant” answer from the noob that wrote this attempt at an article: “so what? If you really need to get somewhere quickly, doing so safely beats not getting there at all.”. Clearly, he never even attempted to get somewhere fast, much less was really forced to do so.

      The Volvo was very quick to put it’s hazard lights on, or maybe they were switched on before the impact. DUI drivers and ‘joyriders’ don’t usually activate their hazard lights. The recklessness we see could be desperation. An emergency.

        The hazard lights are triggered automatically by collision.

    The most telling thing in this clip is not the Volvo but the reaction of the people in the camera car. They were not surprised at all. Just another normal event in a normal day.
