Driver Manages To Avoid Kia Sorento That Spins After Hitting Metal Divider

Oftentimes, it only takes just one wrong move for you to cause a very serious accident and put yourself, your passenger(s) and other road users in harm’s way.

Take the driver of this second-generation Kia Sorento as an example. We’re not sure what they were doing behind the wheel, but it’s pretty obvious it didn’t end up well.

The SUV can be seen weaving between the two lanes prior to the crash, which suggests the driver might have been distracted. The driver of the dashcam vehicle believes they were texting, but at this point that’s just an assumption.

“I was almost hit in Chattanooga. Pretty sure this idiot was texting and driving. Everyone that was involved in the accident was okay! No one was hurt due to this accident,” he states in the description of the video.

Texting or not, that was a serious hit on the chin taken by the Korean SUV whose driver was, thankfully, not hurt. A closer analysis of the footage shows that the vehicle actually impacted a small metal divider, and not the concrete barrier.

As for the way in which the cammer avoided crashing into the Kia, we reckon that he was perfectly concentrated, which is how he managed to steering clear and not hit the Sorento that was bouncing after the impact.

    Perfect calm reaction by the cammer. It’s possible the Kia driver was intoxicated, fell asleep at the wheel, or had a seizure. Either way, bravo the cammer that avoided collision!

      Too extreme. Choice 1 is always distracted by phone. Touchscreen phones are a plague upon humanity in many ways. This is just one.

        When you really think about it, smartphones are parasitic AI. This can be good or bad depending on who maintains control.

    The SUV signaled as if he(?) intentionally wanted to hit the barrier.

    Imho, the dash cam driver just got lucky avoiding getting directly involved.

  • Bo Hanan

    I call that an “exit-stage-left” move.

    I think the white SUV driver was trying to park on the shoulder as the blinker was turned on. The glaring sun makes hard to see the shoulder was gone and replaced by concrete barrier.

    • Mr. Big

      Looks like the blinker was turned on earlier than that to make a lane change in front of the cam car and never turned it off.

    That was just lucky the thing spun out of the other driver’s way.
