The problem with pushing your luck on a small dusty road is that you risk losing control of your vehicle if the maneuver you’re attempting is, let’s say, too ambitious.
Take the driver of this third-generation Jeep Liberty crossover. He had the absolute worst idea at that time in trying to pass the cammer while another vehicle was approaching fast, coming the other way. Thankfully, the head-on collision was avoided, although the maneuver culminated with the driver at fault losing control.
Just to put into perspective how close of a call that initial situation was, pay attention to that Chevy Suburban and how its driver had to steer away from the Jeep in order to make sure the two SUVs didn’t make contact. They may have also had to brake, although it’s hard to tell.
In the end, it appears that the person at fault didn’t really know what to do once he rejoined the right side of the road. There doesn’t seem to be sufficient steering input and the vehicle inevitably made its way to the grass (good thing there wasn’t another car directly behind that Suburban) where it proceeded to knock over a fence and roll over before landing on its wheels, seemingly.
The accident took place earlier this month on June 8 and according to the description of the video, the driver of the Jeep walked away with only a few cuts on his arm. That’s what we call lucky.
