If you see something, say something. Simple words to live by, right? This is especially true in traffic, where you might just end up saving somebody’s life by reporting what you’ve seen to the authorities.
The driver of this dashcam-equipped SUV saw a white Jeep weaving through multiple lanes and decided to take it upon himself to assess the situation and report his findings to the Illinois State Police. However, things quickly took a turn for the worse.
About 15-seconds into the video below, the Jeep can be seen drifting wide outside of its lane, before its driver attempts to merge back, bumping into a black Cadillac Escalade. As a result, the Jeep skidded for a split second and rammed into a semi truck, flipping over.
Apparently, the driver of the Jeep managed to walk away with only a few scrapes and bruises, while also asking people if they saw him get hit by the black SUV.
“I walked up to him after he said he was hit and I was like ‘No dude you’re wasted, you HIT them!'” – said the driver of the dashcam vehicle while discussing what happened. “I think he was on a combo of pills and booze but as others have stated I shouldn’t jump to a conclusion. As I was driving next to him earlier he was nodding out, but after the accident it seemed like he was on speed.”
In the end, that person should consider themselves lucky, even though he probably won’t feel that way after the authorities will inflict whichever legal punishment they deem appropriate.
From the dash-cam driver:
I saw this guy going in out of lanes for miles and pulled up next to him and sure enough he was nodding out behind the wheel. I immediately called it in to the police and oddly enough my gut told me I should record this guy in case anything happened. About 5 minutes later the guy crashes into the side of the black SUV causing his Jeep to flip multiple times hitting two other cars.
I pull over and go up to the accident after I stop recording and the guy to my amazement is asking everyone if they saw HIM get hit by the black SUV… this guy was so wasted he was convinced he was the one who was hit! I thought I’d show the world what happens when you drive drunk or intoxicated because it’s never worth it. People can wind up seriously hurt and injured, or worse. I did everything I could to prevent this accident from happening aside from putting my own life on the line and stopping the guy with my 4Runner.
Forgive my obnoxious screaming of, “Oh my god” multiple times, I was in the heat of the moment shock-wise. Thankfully no one was hurt other than a few scrapes and bruises, including the intoxicated driver of the Jeep.
