Ford Mustang And SUV Crash While Speeding On Washington, D.C. Highway

Street racing is never a good idea – and the following video perfectly illustrates what can go wrong if you treat local roads like your own private racetrack.

The following clip was recorded a couple of days ago along Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C and captures the moment a Ford Mustang and an SUV crash at high speed.

At approximately 5 seconds into the video, filmed from the dashcam of an Uber driver’s vehicle, a silver SUV speeds past in the middle lane. Just behind it is a black (or dark green) Ford Mustang and the duo can be seen attempting to speed around a sweeping right-hand bend on the interstate.

The SUV appears to get into trouble shortly after starting to turn and seems to understeer towards the concrete barriers on the side of the interstate. At the same time, the driver of the Mustang taps the brakes a couple of times, evidently after discovering that they were going way too fast to make the corner.

It looks like the Mustang overtakes the SUV around the turn, but then the rear end of the Ford snaps out and sends the car barrelling into the barrier. The driver of the SUV loses control shortly afterwards and also slams into the barrier. As the cammer drives past, it’s clear that the Mustang has suffered significant front and rear-end damage. The SUV doesn’t appear to be as badly damaged and the occupants can be seen exiting.

If for some reason you need reminding that pedal-to-the-metal driving should be limited to the safe confines of a track, look no further than the following video.

    well it could had been worse. At least they didn’t hurt no one else .. Speed like that never ends good, their lucky they were all able to stand up and walk away

  • Dark Rebel

    Looks like the drive on the right could not take the banked turn properly. The speed did not appear to be high. The drive in the mustang just made a major error when he shot across. Terrible handling skills!

  • europeon

    Why the hurry? Was the Mustang driver late for a Cars & Coffee meet?

    • Knotmyrealname

      He was confused because his panels were all straight.

  • They were going way to fast. Going over 80 MPH can cause you to more easily lose control of your car. A highway is not a good place to race

  • TheBelltower

    Both were driving like morons. You can see the SUV switching lanes in an attempt to round the sharp corner.

  • Harry_Wild

    Mustangs are not track cars even they are now promoted as that! Mustang cannot corner!

    • Jason Miller

      On a track it’s fine, on the street there are a world of variables that can make the car lose control. Starting with a terrible driver.

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      GT350 as well as multiple other GTs laughs at your ignorant and misinformed comment.

  • Matt Teter

    Ouch! Thats what driving too fast will get you! The SUV looks like a Kia Sorrento.
