Irresponsible Corolla Driver Gets Trailer-Slapped By Passing Semi

An Alabama police officer caught a brutal collision on dashcam, between a semi truck and a grey Toyota Corolla. The crash took place this past Friday in Bay Minette, and luckily, nobody was seriously injured.

We’re still struggling to imagine how somebody could be oblivious to a large semi truck about to cross their path in an open intersection with perfect all-round visibility. All the Toyota driver had to do was look left, then right and proceed accordingly.

The second they would have turned their head to the right, the semi would have come into view – it clearly was very close to the intersection since the collision happened so quickly after the Corolla began venturing forward.

All things considered, this crash could have been a heck of a lot worse had that semi impacted the passenger vehicle directly – same if the trailer’s rear wheels would have somehow crushed the car. Instead, the Corolla took a massive hit from the trailer’s rear axle, got spun around and bumped into that mail truck.

This incident is really similar to one that we showed you last year when the driver of a black Nissan Murano lost control and slid underneath a semi trailer. The angle of contact is pretty much identical and so is the damage, plus the way the crossover was spun around.

However, that Nissan driver couldn’t do anything to avoid the crash, whereas the person behind the wheel of this Corolla is uniquely responsible for what happened.

 

  • That looks like a 2017-2019 Toyota Corolla LE which has the pre-collision system with automatic braking as part of the safety sense package. The driver should have seen the truck coming.

  • Finkployd

    nearly forgot car accidents weren’t Tesla-exclusive

    • And the advance safety systems are not exclusive to Telsa either. Toyota introduced Safety Sense standard in 2017 model year. It includes pre-collision system with automatic braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure alert & lane keeping assist, dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams and sway warning.

    • Porkopolis

      At least keying incidents remain Tesla-exclusive.

      There were no fire trucks present.

        The car in front is a has been written off.

  • BlackPegasus

    And two police patrol cars happen to be already on the scene. Too bad the semi driver had to be inconvenienced by that asshat Corolla driver.

  • You know the driver was a person with color, since the WHITE policeman walked really slow to the car… Not cool

    • BlackPegasus

      Bruh STOP it! LOL 😂

    • LJ

      A person with color?

    • ChrisInIL

      Pardon me, sir. Your epidermis is showing.

    • db

      Newsflash: idiots come in all “colors”.

    • Knotmyrealname

      Are you saying that only people with colour have those sorts of stupid accidents?

      • i’m saying that the dumb red-neck truck driver could slow the fuq down, and the pure white Police man should not show his true color…

        • Knotmyrealname

          Define ‘red-neck’?

        • James Denz

          Yet another racist remark. Jeez.

    • robotlogic

      You must be loads of fun at parties.

      • not really…

        • Knotmyrealname

          True, you’re not any fun here either.

          • Do you really think im here to amuse you guys? Are you mad? Trying to show a message! How dare you!

          • Knotmyrealname

            not fun and unintelligible

    • James Denz

      Only a person with racist tendencies would make that kind of remark.

      • BUT you’re A WHITE MALE!

        • James Denz

          You just proved my point. You’re labeling people by race and I don’t mean the human race. Besides that, you know nothing of my ethnic background.

          • oHHH, i KNOW YOUR type.! As part of Antifa, we daily scare people you away, f acist!

          • James Denz

            That says it all. Racist and fascist. Your parents must be so proud.

  • LJ

    Probably an elderly driver that shouldn’t have been on the road in the first place.

  • charlotteharry57

    Based on the vintage of the Corolla with Safety Sense likely, this is clearly another case of texting while driving.

  • Jason Miller

    Didn’t stop at the stop sign either. As soon as the Chrysler made it’s turn the Corolla just drove forward. Looked like they were impaired or something.

    • Knotmyrealname

      Well, if they weren’t before, they probably are now.

  • TheBelltower

    Surprise. Another inattentive Corolla driver.

    • Stigasawuswrecks

      They did the world a favor by taking a corolla of the road. Now if all of the others just faced the same fate then the world be a much better place.

      • TheBelltower

        And it would free up the passing lane.

        • Stigasawuswrecks

          Funny that you mention that. I was stuck behind a Corolla in the passing lane today driving home. They are the bane of existence.

    Anyone know what that funny little van is that got whacked by the corolla?

  • Paul

    That brings new meaning to the phrase taking a spin in my Toyota. Jerk wad would not have had his car trashed had he not run the stop sign.

  • db

    Isn’t it kind of weird that there were two cop cars at the very same intersection when this accident happened? The Corolla driver was probably wondering the same thing and wasn’t even looking at the semi barrelling down on him.

  • Braun

    “Irresponsible Corolla Driver” is redundant. The Corolla and the Camry are always the worst drivers on US roads. The RAV4 is catching up though. I stay as far away as I can from these cars on the road.

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      Same.

      People who buy them hate driving and see their vehicles as an appliance. People who hate driving usually are bad drivers.

    It looks like he never stopped texting even after getting mowed down by the semi. Probably didn’t even realize he had been in an accident.
