Toyota Camry Clips Honda Accord, Flips Violently Onto Its Roof

This crash seems to be the result of multiple errors committed by the driver of the older Toyota Camry, the first of which being lack of attentiveness.

They should have been keeping their eyes on the traffic ahead, which was beginning to slow down as another driver was preparing to make a right turn. Meanwhile, error number two was the indecisiveness at the end, which indirectly led to the Camry clipping the car ahead and rolling over.

Paying a major price

Admittedly, the “punishment” definitely didn’t fit the crime here. But that tends to happen sometimes in traffic, where “metal” doesn’t really care about fairness, and simply follows the laws of physics.

In this case, it was momentum and the precise angle of impact that saw that Camry bounce upwards and to the left, flipping over onto its side before going wheels-up. The main reason why this happened, was the fact that the Toyota’s front right wheel made contact with the Honda’s rear left – definitely not the first time we’ve seen something like this (it’s a surprisingly common type of crash).

As for damages, it’s likely that both cars will get written off. The Camry because of severe structural damage, and the Accord because of what might amount to rear axle damage.

In the end, let’s just hope that the occupant or occupants of the Toyota weren’t seriously injured.

    Did the honda break check the toyota

    • Alpha

      No. Honda reduces speed because the vehicle in front of it makes a tight right turn.

      • Jim Ragland

        Right…and the Camry owner had to be on the phone since they didn’t even slow down and gradually drifting into the other lane until it was to late.

    He was not even speeding, proof that going within the limit is never enough.

    Passenger: Truth or Dare?

    Driver: Dare!

    Passenger: I dare you to flip off the car ahead of us.

    Driver: Very poor choice of words.

  • Porkopolis

    Hey! That Accord has four wheel steering!

  • Ron Carter

    The result of following too closely for rhe speed.

  • salamOOn

    as we can see, you dont need an SUV to be flipped over….

  • ted

    Clearly the Toyota driver is at fault here but the Honda driver should take a little bit of blame as well… dark tinted windows such that traffic behind him can’t see anything in front, and closely following the traffic ahead which causes he or she to rapidly decelerate when the car ahead makes a turn. Obviously the Toyota driver should have given more space but keep in mind, the Toyota driver doesn’t have the benefit of seeing a turn signal to broadcast the leading drivers intent to slow down and turn. The Honda driver does yet the dark windows prevent the Toyota driver from even knowing a car is up there. When the Honda driver brakes, Toyota has no idea it’s to effect a turn and as such needs to slow waaaaay down.

    Can anyone identify that sweet sweet music that was playing?

        OMG, I backed up the video and you might be right!

        • ChrisInIL

          I had to listen to it three times – the speaker may be too close to the dashcam’s mic. I can’t believe anyone would be so desperate as to listen to something that always sounds like that.

  • Thunderbolt

    In the older model cars it would be a hit in the bumper, it seems that the newer design bypasses this action and causes a flip instead.

    • baofe

      At the angle and speed the Camry was going, a flip was enviable. I’d still take a new model car vs and older one for overall safety any day.

  • Paul M

    Hmm. An independent rear suspension Honda Accord has “axle damage”? Amazing how writers of car related websites have no clue about some of the most popular and best selling cars in the world. Ok, there is a spindle, but it does not rotate. It is NOT an axle.

    Toyota Camry drivers…drive like crap, or super slow. No in-between. The car engines last forever, but they are cheap tin cans Engineered only to work and nothing more.

  • Sovereignty

    It’s a Camry. No great loss.

  • Paul

    Awesome!

  • TheBelltower

    Now that’s quite a “Camry Dent”

  • Perry F. Bruns

    The Camry is weirdly lit, and also moves in a way that reminds me of a footballer feigning an injury.
