Nissan Altima Slams Into Camaro And Tries To Run, Things Don’t End Well

The driver of a Nissan Altima got their just desserts after side-swiping a Chevrolet Camaro and fleeing the scene.

Dash cam footage captured by the driver of the Camaro SS, Ivan Tover, shows him turning left at a green turn signal when all of a sudden, an Altima in the lane next to him slams into the muscle car. The white Altima then proceeds to illegally cross the intersection in an attempt to flee the scene of the accident.

Not satisfied with watching the driver make off without some kind of punishment, Tovar begins to chase the Nissan and as you’d expect, he is able to easily catch up with it. This is when the hilarity ensues.

Don’t do what this Nissan driver did

As the driver of the Nissan Altima tries to flee, she understeers around a right-hand bend and proceeds to slide down a ditch and into a barb wire fence. The driver even tries to reverse out of the predicament but is unable to.

Tovar doesn’t hold back when the female driver steps out of the Altima, unleashing a verbal-tirade against the women who at one stage, even complains about her vehicle getting stuck in the ditch all while forgetting that she’s solely responsible for the damage. Tovar quickly learns that she doesn’t have insurance or a driver’s license before the woman bizarrely decides to walk off as Tovar called the police.

Writing in the comments section of the YouTube video, Tovar stated that his Camaro was deemed a write-off as it suffered frame damage. He got a new one but had to pay a $1000 insurance deductible.

    (note to article posted ealier) If this were GTA she would would’ve gotten run over and or shot.. Funny how it took her to crash just for her to lie and say she’d pay for the damage. Shame about the car though current Camaros look great I’d be hurt getting totaled out from an accident like this.

  • Peter Vancouver

    Not buying this. He had to pay the $1K deductible after she hits him? really. Looked like a minor side swipe, and the car is a write-off really?.

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Didn’t she take some free hits at it again as she tried to reverse up the slope?

    • europeon

      Looked like a minor side swipe, and the car is a write-off really?.

      Chassis damage is a write-off 99% of the cases.

      • Peter Vancouver

        Sure, but that didn’t look like a heavy hit, I bet the damage to the chassi was done previously and this is a staged incident to get a new car.

        • BlackPegasus

          Bruh, take off your tin foiled hat. If he wanted to do an insurance scam just to get out of his car loan I’m sure there are dozens of ways to do it without recording VIDEO which can incriminate you and your accomplice.

        • europeon

          I’ve seen SUVs totaled by what you might call fender benders with supermini cars. Cars are designed to protect the passengers in case of accidents, absorbing the shocks, not to withstand impacts.

    • Emoto

      How that works depends on the insurance you carry. It is possible.

      • Peter Vancouver

        Maybe, but if it’s 100% the other person’s fault, their insurance covers all deductibles. I still think it’s a staged accident to distract from a previous serious chassi damage that the owner incurred.

    • Corbin

      My dad owns a body shop. I’ve seen write offs for far less. That would have taken atleast $8000 to fix just the body damage and re paint the whole side of the car(if you just paint a door and fenders it will never match perfectly). If it had even a slight dent in the undercarriage or frame it’s considered frame damage and ruins the integrity of the car. Frame damage is almost always a write off. This wasn’t staged, these reactions are pretty genuine.

      • Peter Vancouver

        I’ve come around. Thanks for your and others educated input.

      • Wandering_Spirit

        Thanks for explaining this. It’s very interesting. In Italy it would be considered a minor damage and the car fixed at a reasonably low price, considering the car and the fact spares come from the US. Frame damage is when you need to disassemble and straighten the chassis. Even so, there isn’t significant loss of price if the work is well done.

    • MarketAndChurch

      He’s probably just being a drama queen, as a way to channel is his frustration, so that his aggression doesn’t get out of hand.

  • charlotteharry57

    I’m not kidding. 90% of criminally charged events here in Charlotte that involve driving involve an ’02-’12 Altima. What’s going on? Is this the current status car in the ‘hoods? Used to be Elantras and before that, Impalas.

    • KAG25

      Altimas have became big in the rental car world. So people with bad credit pickup old ones really cheap, That is one reason you see a lot of them now.

      • TRB0T0Y

        That’s a fact Jack! 1 out of 3 new Altimas roll right from the assembly line to the rental car line. It might tarnish the image , but nevertheless , those new ones are pretty swell.

        • KAG25

          They are good cars and that is probably why the rental car companies started using them instead of other brands. But yeah, I own a Nissan and have to watch out for Altimas because of idiot drivers, but the worst are the Lexus and Cadillac drivers around here.

          • baofe

            BMW drives trumps them all. No matter where you are its best to keep a safe distance from them and always double check your mirrors for the one tailing so close behind you.

          • KAG25

            A young person in a fast Cadillac and someone is going to get run off the road here. BMW drivers go with the muscle car drivers.

    • BlackPegasus

      I think this is nationwide. Nissan Altimas and older model Sentras are seemingly involved in reckless driving and road rage incidents. Add older Dodge Chargers and Chevy Impalas for good measure.

    • Socarboy

      Bottom feeder cars for bottom feeder drivers….I do time lapsed road videos and here is a Nissan Altima driver putting his car in my following space at the 4:24 mark

      https://youtu.be/JVYdVOYiduk

      • Knotmyrealname

        Interesting. How many car lengths were you behind that Merc?

  • Knotmyrealname

    Question: did the Camaro try to make an illegal left turn in a straight through lane?
    And… otherwise, yes I know the Altima driver went right out of a left turn lane, but was the Camaro driver in the wrong to start with?

    • Emoto

      No, you can see the dashed painted lane markings that show both lanes through the left turn.

      • Knotmyrealname

        I see the dashed painted lines to her right marking out the turning lane, but don’t see any to his right.

    • Bo Hanan

      She was turning left, changed her (female) mind, tried to go straight, hit his car, panicked, went straight anyway and drove straight into the wrong side of the road.

      • Socarboy

        Exactly

      • Knotmyrealname

        Yep, I totally get what she did, just asking whether he was in the wrong lane to start with.

    • Jay

      No. The are two turning lanes. When there are two turning lanes there is only one dotted line between the two. It’s there so to let the driver know which lane to stay in while turning.

      • Knotmyrealname

        I still disagree. It seems there are two lanes approaching that intersection and hers is clearly marked as a turning lane, while his is not. Also there are diagonal lines to his right, which to me says that his is the only ‘through’ lane.
        But, I don’t live in the states, and I will stand corrected. It just seems wierd.

        • Jay

          Yea that’s one of the confusing intersections. She assumed the Camaro would go straight as he could’ve. However she changed her mind about turning and it looks like it didn’t matter if the Camaro was turning or not as she would’ve merged into him either way. Her error was crossing the line to go straight. If she stayed in her lane the accident wouldn’t have happened and the Camaro would’ve ended up behind her or in the next lane.

          • Knotmyrealname

            Yes, the error was clearly hers in driving into him. Don’t disagree with that part.

        • metric

          If you pause at the three second mark, you can see the sign on the right indicating a double left much lie this one.

          • Knotmyrealname

            Yes, saw it. Thanks.

  • KAG25

    Following a crazy driver into the middle of farm land without anyone around seems like a way to get shot. why risk your life.

  • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

    Well, what do you know, it’s an ignorant woman trying to flee away from the incident. How typical they can be.

  • Bo Hanan

    He went #Metoo and treated her like the crook that she was. Good for him!

  • BlackPegasus

    I would sue that fat slobby reprobate and shame her on social media.

    • Socarboy

      The guy in the Camaro was right she probably had no insurance

  • Chandrasiri

    Self-centered but cannot see her own stupidity.

  • Socarboy

    Not to be stereotypical but I’ve noticed a lot of bone headed moves by Nissan Altima drivers of late. I guess the credit challenged are now buying Altimas, The former bottom feeder cars you would have to watch out for careless operation were the Chrysler Sebring/200, and Dodge Avenger

    • TheBelltower

      It used to be Maxima drivers were the worst. Since Nissan makes an even more subprime midsized sedan, now the Altima is the worst.

      • Pissed Canuck

        And in a separate article, the Altima is also now the most stolen vehicle. No honor amongst bottom feeders, ahem thieves.

  • Thunderbolt

    Typical BMW driver, most are on welfare with gangster boyfriends.

    • brn

      Typical Nissan driver?

      • Paul

        Typical commentary.

    • Bo Hanan

      You should stick your head back in the ground.

    • TheBelltower

      WTFRU talking about? There’s no BMW anywhere

  • Knotmyrealname

    I agree, and I think she got into the wrong lane and intended to go straight ahead, but when she did (or tried to), the Camaro drove into her (I feel from the wrong lane). I don’t think she expected that to happen, then crashed and just flipped out.

  • Paul

    With all that video I guess she will reap her rewards for being such a jerk.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I find it really hard to believe people like that woman really exist outside of some specialized structure catering for the mentally ill. One can stop and apologize, acknowledge the error, de-escalate. Most drivers will understand. One can run in a rash of fear….then stop and again say sorry. This one runs and even dares to unapologetically throw a tantrum about her car being crashed by herself while trying to run from a car she damage…what do you say to someone like that? Sterilize her please.

  • Alduin

    Ah Mexican or of South American person. No surprise there and can barely speak english. I bet she has no licence or insurance either then acts stupid when caught on camera.

    • brn

      It’s comments like this that provide the fuel your opposition is looking for.

      • Alduin

        A large majority of hit and run accidents are done by illegal aliens so nice try you fail.

        • willhaven

          Please provide us a source of this bullshit statistic.

      • Alduin

        People like you are the problem with this country. You refuse to accept the truth and the facts and instead claim shes just a poor woman who can barely speak english. She’s probably an illegal.

    • willhaven

      My IQ dropped 10 points reading this comment.

      • Alduin

        You’ve always had a very low IQ to begin with.

  • MarketAndChurch

    It happens. People panic. Thankfully neither of them was hurt. Even if she didn’t have a license or insurance, that and all that happened in this video are the least of her worries.

  • Alx

    she is winning in life. #choices

  • willhaven

    Did you even read this? There are no data to back up your assertion.
