A dash-cam of a fellow motors recently captured a rather brutal hit-and-run involving a seventh-gen Chevy Malibu on the I-75 in Detroit. On Tuesday, the video in question was released by local Police in hopes of locating the Malibu and/or its driver.
As you will see in the video below, a United VanLines semi and the white Malibu sedan were driving side-by-side down the freeway. Upon approaching the I-94 exit ramp, the ‘Bu is traveling in the lanes that peel off onto the exit, but instead of exiting, it continues to travel straight, merging several seconds after into the lane of the truck, thereby slamming into it and causing the semi to flip onto its side and then into the median wall. A major collision, indeed.
Luckily, the 54-year-old male truck driver was wearing a seat belt and suffered minor bumps and bruises, though we can’t say the same about the truck he was driving. Meanwhile, the Chevrolet flees the scene with damage to the quarter panel. The incident also resulted in the closing of the interstate for several hours.
The driver of the Malibu is said to not be in custody, but has been interviewed by the authorities. Charges have not yet been pressed, but an investigation is currently underway.
