A dashcam video of a wild, near-fatal crash involving a GMC Acadia has attracted nearly 150,000 views after it was uploaded to the Viral Hog YouTube channel this week.
This dangerous multi-vehicle accident happened just after noon in Indianapolis on October 17th. According to the owner of the dashcam that captured the wreck, the GMC Acadia driver was travelling eastbound when they blew a red light, causing them to get t-boned by a fast-moving Honda Pilot that was travelling northbound on the intersecting road.
“A person driving Eastbound on 82nd street ran a red light at Hague rd,” the dashcammer said in the video description. “We were facing Westbound on 82nd, stopped at the red light as a pedestrian crossed 82nd street. An oncoming vehicle didn’t see the red light. The struck vehicle sprinkled mine with parts and the sunroof.”
The cammer says the GMC Acadia landed on a car that was parked next to their vehicle, causing it to dramatically spin on its nose before it fell back down and landed on a Jaguar SUV that was also waiting at the red light. Strangely, that Jaguar SUV can be seen attempting to drive with the Acadia on its windshield/roof toward the end of the video. A total of six vehicles were damaged in this wreck, but thankfully (and somewhat surprisingly) there were no injuries.
In addition to the half dozen vehicles that were damaged in the crash, the rolling GMC Acadia was just a few feet away from wiping out a pedestrian that was crossing the intersection at the time. If the pedestrian had started crossing moments later than he did, this wreck could have ended in tragedy.
