A motorist in Florida captured a multi-vehicle wreck they were involved in on their high definition dashcam earlier this month, putting the spotlight on the Chevy Malibu driver that caused the crash.
The video, which was posted to the ViralHog channel on YouTube this week, shows the motorist travelling at highway speed in the center lane of a three-lane highway in Sarasota, Florida. As they approach a line of traffic stopped in the right lane, a silver sixth-generation Chevy Malibu can be seen quickly merging into the stationary lane before changing their mind and hopping back into the middle lane. The motorist attempts to stop and swerve to avoid the slow-moving Chevy, but ends up clipping the vehicle’s left rear and going on two wheels before slamming back down and sliding into the grass median.
Here’s how the central crash victim described the scene:
“I was travelling on the highway in Sarasota, Florida. I had my 4K dashcam running. A car merged into the exit lane, then decided after going 5 mph, he would come back into my lane when I was going 70 mph. They struck the car at an angle, my car went airborne briefly, it almost flipped. After the impact, the car I hit then hit 2 more cars and spun around on the highway.”
We weren’t able to dig up any local Sarasota-area news reports on this wreck, so we can’t confirm if anyone was hurt or taken to hospital. The occupants of the Chevy Malibu can be seen emerging from the vehicle under their own power toward the end of the video, however, and the dashcammer didn’t mention any injuries in the video description.
