Blown Tire Causes Terrifying Head-On Crash

A dashcam has caught a terrifying video showing the moment a semi hits a Kia Ceed head-on.

As you can see in the clip found by Redditors, three vehicles are traveling on a two lane road in Poland as they approach a curve. At the same time, a semi in traveling in opposite direction suffers a tire blowout at the seven second mark.

The blowout occurs at the worst possible time as the driver loses control of the semi and bushes up against another semi before hitting the Ceed head-on. The force of the impact was so great, that the semi effectively punted the Ceed into the car traveling behind it.

The clip ends shortly thereafter, but the semi continued on its path and ended up in a ravine. The Ceed, on to other hand, flipped on its side and was wedged between the semi and a guard rail.

Surprisingly, no one was killed in the accident. Express-Miejski says the Ceed was driven by a 22-year old woman who was conscious when firefighters arrived on the scene. They apparently had to use hydraulic tools (ie: the Jaws of Life) to free her so she could be taken to the hospital.

Everyone else in the crash escaped relatively unharmed as the publication says the woman was the only person who required hospitalization.

      I’m always proactively looking for outs in the event I’m in a situation like this, (2 lanes & no median) but- there was no time to think here.

      • dn12005

        Yeah….likewise. Always like to think I have a good handle on various driving situations, but this. IDK man! That is some serious pucker your butt hole and hold on for dear life!

      • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

        Yeah, I don’t think this accident was really avoidable in this situation.

        Very happy to hear no one lost their life.

        • Aeromann

          It was avoidable.
          Where is safety distance? And if there is a white line what is the point of driving on it?

          She was in hurry, she arrived late in the end.

  • paulgdeaton

    That speaks well for the safety cage of the Kia.

      one hell of an ad for Kia

    • Aeromann

      It was just a big luck.

  • StrangerGP

    No it’s not. And in this case the accident was (partially) caused by a bursted tire.

    • badcyclist

      Yeah, this is an accident that could have happened in any country, anywhere, any time. Like others, sorry that the one driver was injured, happy no one was killed.

    • Aeromann

      And because the truck was very fast for this curve. 😉

    Amazing that nobody got killed here.
