Mercedes Goes Flying After Side-Swiping Fellow Motorist

These two dashcam videos show the price you can pay for being an impatient driver.

The incident happened somewhere in the United States and was triggered by the driver of an old Mercedes-Benz with no regard for other road users.

As the cammer drives down the second-most right lane on the motorway, a Mercedes C-Class suddenly steers right into the front of him and goes straight into a section of dirt on the side of the road before getting airborne and slamming into a concrete barrier, almost rolling over as it comes to a rest.

The innocent cammer didn’t just capture the incident with a front-facing dashcam but also one at the back. This rear camera shows the Mercedes driver rapidly approaching the dashcam vehicle from behind before, at the very last second, changing lanes to avoid rear-ending the other car. It remains to be seen why the Mercedes driver then so aggressively cuts off the cammer but the clip does offer a glimpse of the damage sustained to the C-Class.

Remarkably, the Mercedes driver doesn’t appear to have been injured despite the crash and towards the end of the video, can be seen exiting the car and jogging towards the cammer, probably a little red-faced with the high-speed crash they had just caused.

    Mercedes drivers never, ever pay attention to anyone else on the road. It’s so consistent with this one brand. Doesn’t matter if it’s a $3,500 10 year-old C class or a $100,00 new S Class, same disregard for everyone else on the road.

      I’ve never found that to be the case in my experience.

      Never been my experience. Usually they’re more conscientious than say BMW or Toyota Prius drivers.

    Mercedes driver clearly driving like an a-hole but I noticed that the cam car was getting passed on both sides. If he’s going to be a rolling roadblock, he should have done so from the far right lane

      You should watch the video for what it shows, and not for what you want to see.

      He was driving with the traffic in his lane.
