The driver of a second-generation Chevy Blazer almost caused a head-on crash with two cars right after driving the wrong way on I-70 near Golden, Colorado, brand new dashcam footage shows.
The particular dashcam video, which was posted to the ViralHog channel online this week, shows a Darkish Cherry Red Metallic second-gen Chevy Blazer almost causing a head-on accident with three other automobiles as they traveled the wrong way throughout the interstate. The filmer from the footage submitted the following explanation along with the short 30-second video:
“Was generating down west I-70 along with three friends behind me personally heading to some hot suspension systems when a car coming head-on almost hit all four people forcing us to steer out of the way. ”
The particular filmer was lucky this particular wreckless Chevy Blazer car owner didn’t hit them, as being a head-on impact at however, relatively low speeds observed in the video can cause serious injuries or worse. We could not find any other news reviews on this wrong-way driver, therefore we’re assuming (and hoping) that they managed to successfully quit the interstate shortly after this particular near miss and re-enter going the proper direction.
Based on the U. S. Department associated with Transportation, wrong-way driver accidents kill 300 to four hundred people in the United States each year typically. This represents only 1 % of the total number of traffic-related fatalities that occur each year, however because wrong-way operater crashes often involve head-on or opposite direction sideswipe crashes at high rates of speed, they tend to be relatively more serious than other types of accidents, the DOT says.
