Hyundai Elantra Mounts Naughty Chevy Camaro And Flips

If you ever thought that people might be exaggerating with all the honking and verbal scolding whenever they get cut off in traffic, this here crash is a perfect example of why everyone is so intolerant of other driver pulling out in front of them without a moment’s notice.

It’s just plain dangerous. Besides, human beings can only do so much with their average reaction time of some 0.25 seconds to visual stimulus. So having other drivers test your reactions because of their poor judgement is unacceptable on all levels.

Here, as far as we can tell, the driver of the Hyundai Elantra had over two full seconds to brake, or at least steer clear of the Camaro that had just merged onto the southbound lane. But what did they do? They waited until the two cars were nearly bumper to bumper and then attempted to casually steer left.

Maybe they were looking elsewhere or doing who knows what else rather than keeping their eyes on the road ahead – it’s just a shame really, because this was clearly an avoidable crash. Instead, the Hyundai ended up hitting the muscle car in such a way that it caused a flip.

As for the driver of the Camaro, there’s obviously no excuse for what they did, and the only reason why we’ve actually focused more on the Hyundai driver’s actions is because seeing somebody cut in front of you at a crawling pace happens every day. Seeing somebody have that slow of a reaction time is what’s baffling.

Thankfully, all parties involved suffered only minor injuries, as per the description of the video.

    Looks like the Camaro crossed solid white line with a car coming at speed behind him. what a idiot.

  • DMax

    Hyundai’s fault 100%. With that kind of reaction time that doofus should not even be allowed to drive. That or distracted driving.

    • getoffme

      Both of them are at fault.

  • kachuks

    Check your mirrors before changing lanes.

    Keep your eyes on the road, especially at highway speeds.

    • Jay

      Agreed both party’s at fault here. Camaro could’ve sped it up a bit when doing the late lane change and the reaction time could’ve been better for Hyundai driver..

      • Stigasawuswrecks

        Nope! Camaro crossed a solid line which is illegal He’s completely at fault regardless of the reaction time of the Hyundai.

        • Jay

          Did you know when you rear end someone when you slide on ice or snow you could still be at fault? Same thing with hitting a car that runs a red light. If they can prove you had time to avoid/prevent the accident then the blame could be split/shifted. For example if a car is sitting still in an intersection and you choose to drive strait into when the light turns green that’s your fault. The Camaro would have a hard time proving the other car was partly to blame if they don’t have a camera but and would mostly be at fault because of that but from this video I’d say they’re both at fault.

          • Stigasawuswrecks

            Okay? His illegal lane change and failure to merge at a safe speed was the cause. What does ice and red lights have to do with anything?

          • Jay

            The car was in the lane long enough for the driver to react. The drivers reaction was delayed and you should be in control of the car at all times no matter what. I gave those as examples. I’m just saying that cars that perform illegal actions aren’t always at fault in accidents.

          • Stigasawuswrecks

            Camaro illegally crossed the solid line.

          • Jay

            Read last sentence.

          • Stigasawuswrecks

            I did and his actions were the cause. If he didn’t switch lanes illegally then there wouldn’t have been an accident. If I ran a red light and yours was green and you hit me, are you at fault?

          • Jay

            If I had enough time to slow down or go around the yes I could be partly at fault.

          • schnittz

            What Jay is saying is that Camaro did illegal lane change, but it’s not 100% at fault in the accident. Hyundai driver may have had been distracted and may have driving too fast for traffic conditions. This accident was preventable.

  • Callanish

    Camaro crossed the white line illegally, did it without checking his mirrors and came out so slowly I could have walked by him. The Hyundai driver’s reaction time was just appalling by any definition and he or she was travelling too fast based on the traffic around them. See this kind of driving every day.

  • ctk4949

    The camaro has HUGE blind spots, probably never saw the Elantra. Glad some ppl stopped to make sure everyone was OK.

  • Bill Nguyen

    Heh, what crappy driving…

  • Ron

    Hyundai drivers in Florida are the absolute worse on the road. Im sure the Hyundai driver was speeding and texting at the same time. If a car is on your ass, its a Hyundai. if you get cut off, its a Hyundai, if you see a car running a red light, almost always a Hyundai… etc etc.
