Lousy Lane Change Causes Involuntary Tokyo Drift Antics On Colorado Highway

A seemingly trivial thing like a lane change can have big consequences if it’s poorly executed.

The following video is a painful reminder of that and should be used for educational purposes so that aspiring drivers can realize how costly mistakes behind the wheel can be.

In the footage captured by a dashcam on a highway in Colorado, the camera car is seen driving on lane 3 when, for whatever reason, the driver decides to merge to lane 2.

While he/she is certainly entitled to change lanes, the video shows there was plenty of room ahead and the car in front was traveling at a similar speed. The camera car didn’t even complete the maneuver when all hell broke loose.

A Ford Mustang and VW Golf were approaching too fast and got seemingly taken by surprise. As there wasn’t enough space for both cars on lane 1, they crashed in spectacular fashion. The Mustang took out a red Chevy Malibu, while the Golf started performing a series of involuntary Tokyo Drift antics.

The Mustang driver commented on YouTube that the Golf driver was to blame because he switched lanes from 2 to 1 to bypass the cammer without making sure that it was safe to do so. Obviously, the Golf made a reckless lane change, but the Mustang was also driving too fast to avoid getting tangled up in that accident.

    The Golf driver definitely had his wits about him, nice save.

    I’d bet all that got the ole adrenaline flowing.

    Good grief that’s right by my house geez…

    Looks to me like they were racing and didn’t expect someone to change lanes in front of them. One car tried to squeeze over in front of the other to get around the camera car and they made contact, sending them both spinning. Maybe they will learn a lesson here.

      They were certainly overspeeding and the type of cars involved and decals on the side somehow collaborates this

        It is never safe to assume someone is at fault by the way he looks. Just because he enjoys the car he has and makes it look a certain way doesn’t make him an idiot. What if the camera car cut in front of the Golf causing the accident? The viewers don’t have all the information…

          We’re judging by a video here, not a picture. The two cars had already decelerated at maximum braking (a car skidding on a dry road is still decelerating at a very rapid pace) before they appeared in view of the dashcam, and yet they were still travelling much much faster than surrounding traffic.

    What Colorado interstate is this?

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I am disappointed. It should have been a Mustang and a BMW

  • flyfish

    Person taking the video is responsible, he caused this entire incident, he should have stayed in the right lane, he made the first unsafe lane change.
