Pickup Rolls Over After Being Hit By Out-Of-Control Sedan 14

Imagine this: There you are minding your own business and all of a sudden a car comes barreling into you from the opposite side of the road, causing your vehicle to roll over.

It’s an unfortunate scenario that can have dire consequences, especially on the motorway. There’s no info available, but we sincerely hope that no one was seriously hurt in this incident.

As for why that Camry stepped out of line in the first place, your guess is as good as ours. As you can see, the saloon was merging onto the motorway when, suddenly, it catapulted to the opposite lane.

We have no way of knowing, but unless there was some type of mechanical failure at fault, the driver, for some reason, simply lost control of his vehicle and ended up hitting the pickup truck.

Illegal Overtake Ends With A Head-On Crash In Australia 11

As if ignoring the double white lines wasn’t bad enough, the driver of this white sedan inexplicably failed to return to their side of the road on time.

First, the good news. According to the description of the video, “everyone walked away” from this incident, which is the most you can hope for whenever a frontal collision occurs.

As for why this happened, aside from ignoring the double white lines, it’s possible that the driver of the sedan panicked when they saw the incoming car and tried to exit the road rather than fall back in line.

Another scenario would also include some panic, but with a dash of international tourism, where the person at fault might not have been accustomed to driving on the left side of the road, resulting in  hesitating at precisely the wrong time.

By that point, there wasn’t much the driver of the 4×4 could do, except for brake as hard as they could.

Speeding Semi, Snowy Road, Perfect Recipe For An Accident 9

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Accidents, Dashcam, Offbeat News, Trucks, video on 01 9th, 2018


In case it’s been a while since you last saw an easily avoidable crash, we’ve got you covered.

The driver of this semi either wasn’t paying attention, which sounds unlikely when driving on a snow-covered road at night, or he completely misjudged the situation, failing to slow down on time.

As pointed out in the description, the truck was also heavy, which could have contributed to the accident, although the late braking is often the number one factor in these types of scenarios.

Right before the impact, you’ll notice a gap between that stationary semi on the right and the van in the middle of the road. If the driver at fault could have somehow steered between the two vehicles, he might have managed to stop before hitting anybody.

If he had made it through, he could have used the guardrail to slow down the semi, if conventional methods continued to prove ineffective.

Jeep Driver Spins On Black Ice, Somehow Avoids Hitting Anything! 7

Because black ice is pretty much invisible to drivers it is extremely dangerous, as the person behind the wheel of this red Jeep Grand Cherokee found out.

Normally, people who lose control of their vehicles tend to consider themselves unlucky. In this case though, spinning like that without leaving the road or impacting other cars was actually pretty fortunate.

From what we can tell, as the Jeep crossed over in front of the dashcam car, its driver had already the brakes, which tends to make matters worse when you’re driving on slippery surfaces. Anyway, the SUV spun around 360-degrees twice before the driver managed to regain some sort of control, gently sliding the car back towards the first lane, and continuing on their journey.

According to the description, the incident occurred on New Year’s Eve in Abilene, Texas, where temperatures have dipped below freezing a few times in recent weeks.

Cement Truck Takes A Tumble After Driver Swerves To Avoid Slowing Traffic 6

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Accidents, Dashcam, Offbeat News, Trucks, video on 01 6th, 2018


A speeding cement truck ended up on its side on a road in Vietnam after the driver failed to avoid slower moving traffic up ahead.

Aside from the truck itself, another vehicle was also damaged in the crash, getting hit by the tail end of the concrete mixer. The damage to the passenger car doesn’t seem serious enough and we hope there were no serious injuries or casualties.

As far as we can tell, the truck driver must have been caught by surprise once the cars ahead started slowing down, and it’s safe to assume that he definitely should have been going slower and pay more attention to the traffic right in front of him. In any case, we sincerely hope he escaped this incident unharmed and will be more careful in the future…

Speeding Audi A8 T-Bones Hummer Limo, Both Drivers At Fault? 5

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Accidents, audi, Audi A8, Dashcam, HUMMER, limo, Offbeat News, Russia, video on 01 5th, 2018


Despite the Audi having the right of way, had it not been speeding, the Hummer might have had time to clear the intersection.

That’s not to say that whoever was behind the wheel of that old A8 was more to blame than the limo driver. The latter should have paid more attention, without assuming that any incoming traffic would stick to the speed limit.

However, it almost seems as though the driver of the Audi didn’t brake as hard as they could/should have once they noticed the Hummer poking its nose where it didn’t belong.

This crash is a perfect example of why people should slow down at intersections, even if they have the right of way, have a green light and even if they’re not speeding. You never know who’s out there not paying attention.

As for the impact itself, we could call it moderate. Let’s hope the person driving the Audi was wearing a seat belt.

Truck Smashes Through Traffic Light In Tahailand, Almost Takes Out Rider 26

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Accidents, Dashcam, motorcycles, Offbeat News, Thailand, video on 12 26th, 2017


Multiple cars were damaged and a motorbike rider barely escaped after a small out of control truck took out a traffic light while sliding across the tarmac.

The accident took place in Chiang Mai, the largest city in northern Thailand, and at this time, we can only speculate as to what kick-started this very unfortunate chain of events.

We won’t go as far as to call it a Final Destination-type of incident, but that truck must have crashed at a very high speed, judging by how fast it was actually sliding across the road. Thankfully, that woman on the bike managed to walk away.

At first, it looks as though the traffic light pole landed directly on top of her, but she must have gotten thrown off at precisely the right angle, because moments later, towards the end of the clip, you can see her emerge from behind the Isuzu pickup, running away.

The question is, what happened to whoever was behind the wheel of the truck? The pole went right through the windshield, so all we can do is hope that they were somehow spared as well.

That’s Not How You Enter A Roundabout, Audi A8 Or Not 21

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in audi, Audi A8, Dashcam, Offbeat News, video on 12 21st, 2017


As if speeding through a roundabout wasn’t dangerous enough, the person behind the wheel of this white Audi A8 also felt like adding an illegal overtake to his repertoire.

Then again, if you’re trying to enforce a stereotype, what better way than to drive your big German luxury saloon like the rules don’t apply to you, right?

Too bad this wasn’t one of those ‘instant karma’ situations, because if it were, a police car would have been waiting on the other side of that intersection and we would have suddenly felt a lot better about life in general.

We could also argue that visibility wasn’t optimal entering that roundabout, especially for the Audi driver who had to focus on rapidly overtaking the dashcam car, while also being mindful of the Skoda on the opposite side of the road.

Did the driver really have time to properly scan their surroundings to make sure the coast was clear? Doubtful. But let us know what you think about this type of behavior in traffic.

Biker Almost Pulls Mission Impossible-Like Drift, Still Crashes 19

We don’t need to tell you that running though a red light is one of the most dangerous things you could ever do on a motorcycle. That said, this rider should consider himself very, very lucky.

As you can see, the crash itself wasn’t too violent. The bike managed to slow down considerably during the drift part, not to mention the wobbly, out-of-control part, right before the rider was thrown off.

The accident took place in Sydney, Australia, and thanks to the dashcam car capturing not just the crash itself, but also the moments before, we can piece together the fact that the rider had plenty of time to slow down and stop at the light.

Unfortunately, he chose to ignore both the yellow, and apparently, the red light as well, and couldn’t stay in control under braking – although that short inadvertent drift he pulled off looked like something Tom Cruise would do in a Mission Impossible movie.

Oh, as for his attire of choice, we can’t say we approve of the shorts. Horrible idea.

Van Driver Makes A Mess Of Entering Roundabout, Crashes Hard 15

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Accidents, Dashcam, Offbeat News, video on 12 15th, 2017


One would think that making a mistake at a roundabout would be less costly than in T junction, yet it was not so for the driver of this white van.

We’re not exactly sure why he did what he did, but he must have been going really fast and either paying very little attention to the road, or perhaps experiencing some issues with his brakes.

Either way, it seems everybody involved was unlucky. There could have easily not been a vehicle on the other side of that roundabout to crash into, at that exact moment in time.

As somebody in the comments section points out, the driver could have also been from a left-side drive country, which is why he went left when he realized there was no way of stopping in time.

Of course, we can only speculate on why this incident really occurred. What we can be certain of is that if the van was going slower to begin with, the driver would have had more time to mitigate the impending crisis.

Pickup Driver Goes Off-Roading In The Worst Way Possible 14

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Accidents, Dashcam, Offbeat News, Thailand, Trucks, video on 12 14th, 2017


It’s not everyday you see somebody just drive off the road in the middle of a city, directly into a body of water. Thankfully, the driver managed to get out.

This accident occurred in Chiang Mai, a city in northern Thailand, and as you can hear, the person behind the wheel of the dashcam car was properly shocked to see what was happening.

According to the description of the video, why the pickup veered off the road and into the water is unknown, yet by referring to the driver as an “old guy”, a medical emergency shouldn’t be out of the question.

Everything looked alright up until the truck started its right turn. Before that, the driver had the presence of mind to slow down, put his blinker on and initiate the turn. Whatever happened, it either occurred right at that moment, or perhaps sometime before, yet the elderly driver was able to remain in control for a brief period of time.

This type of crash could easily have ended much worse, especially if there were people on the sidewalk, directly in the truck’s path.

Note: Mind the slightly colorful language from the dashcam car driver

Road Rage Incident Turns Violent When Guy Gets Sucker Punched 12
Dec
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Australia, Dashcam, Offbeat News, Road Rage, video on 12 12th, 2017


There’s nothing more despicable during a confrontation than hitting somebody when they’re not looking, though as you’re about to see, this confrontation got pretty low anyway.

We’re not exactly sure what started the incident.  What we see in the video is the dashcam car driving up to this intersection in Adelaide, Australia, with the two men are already out of their cars arguing about something.

As soon as the passenger of the white Subaru Impreza gets involved, a sucker punch is thrown by the guy in the black t-shirt and then it all goes South.

Of course, we wouldn’t exactly call this a fight, not with a straight face anyway. It’s more of an arm flailing competition where some hits appear to land, though probably not with a lot of momentum.

Unfortunately, the dashcam car drove off before we could see how it all ended. We hope the passenger of the Impreza went on to break up the fight without getting in on the action, because two against one is just as unsportsmanlike as throwing a sucker punch.
