Safety on the road is never a certainty, especially on the highway. One particularly careless and reckless driver from China suddenly decided to halt his car in the midst of an incredibly busy road, which caused multiple vehicles to crash.
The accident is spectacular, to say the least, but luckily, no one got injured.
It seems as if the unnamed driver of the white car attempted to take a very sharp turn, but it’s still unclear why he would’ve stopped his vehicle. Police are speculating that the man missed his exit and simply made a drastic decision to try and correct his mistake – but it ended up in a far bigger one.
The horrific accident involved two large trucks. The driver of the first truck tried to avoid the white car, but it was too late to evade safely. Nobody could’ve seen this stupid and downright dangerous move coming from the man in the white car, and the first truck then toppled right on the emergency lane.
As you can see in the video, the lorry almost dragged the white car with it.
It didn’t stop there, however, as the reckless driver once again made a very poor decision to take another sharp turn – causing another truck to evade. Due to the quick and unforeseen maneuver, the second truck was set on a collision course with its own trailer to avoid a crash with the car. After the harsh break, the truck started leaking its fluids.
Once again, the reckless driver just barely escaped a collision with a truck.
The best part? He just ignores the huge accident he’s caused and proceeds to drive towards the exit.
Absolutely shocking and despicable how this man selfishly and selflessly decided to flee the scene without helping.
It’s also almost unbelievable that this man managed to get away without any injuries, but it’s even more unthinkable that he’d just drive away as if nothing happened. The two drivers of the crashed trucks were definitely in need of assistance and were pretty shocked, but they thankfully didn’t sustain any severe injuries.
The accident occurred on the Changchun-Shenzhen Expressway in the Zhejiang Province in March, but security camera footage of the incident only recently surfaced.
According to the local media, the Chinese Huzhou Traffic Police have tracked down the driver in the white car, although it’s unknown if he was punished for his careless actions.
They also added additional warning signs on the highway, reminding people to use their common sense while driving.
“When driving on the expressway, be sure to pay attention to the signage.”
“The driver should pay more attention to the warning on the right side of the road while driving.”
“Be prepared in advance, decelerate in advance to avoid missing the exit. In the event of a missed intersection, you don’t have to be too flustered.”
“The safest way is to drive on and then wrap around at the next exit.”
“If you miss the exit, all you have to do is keep moving. Absolutely do not slow down, do not brake, do not change, do not hesitate.”
The red truck that toppled was carrying a load of fruit, which quickly spread on and around the emergency lane.
In any case, the accident could’ve been a lot worse and the most important thing is that no one got hurt.
