Van smashes through road divider fencing and flips over onto the opposing lane in a dramatic accident

Van smashes through road divider fencing and flips over onto the opposing lane in a dramatic accident

It is not everyday that you see a van smash into a fence and consequently flip over into the opposing lane after a drift.

Watch this 14 second video and try not to chuckle:

Context as to what happened before the video is unclear, but it seems that the van vehicle lost control of his van, failing to control the drift. He then proceeds to crash into the road divider fence and break into the opposing lane, almost causing another accident with an oncoming car.

As you can see in this screenshot, the van is at an unrecoverable angle of drift. We can only imagine how freaked out the van driver must be. We also speculate that he might have tried to avoid another car, thus having to swerve his vehicle so violently.

The van then lands on its side, almost hitting an oncoming vehicle. Luckily, the driver seems to not have been seriously injured as he was seen moving in the van even after flipping over. 

image.thumb.png.7c265847dfd8cdc1520d4fe3eb292ebf.pngA netizen states that vans always drive quickly, but do not have the ability to take corners. This is a true statement that we feel van drivers should be wary of, especially when most of them do not change tyres regularly, resulting in low levels of grip.

Another netizen says that van and lorry drivers are increasingly using the fast lanes on highways. He thinks that the traffic police has to up their game in keeping a lookout for such drivers, since they will most likely exceed their 60km/h to 70km/h speed limit there.

Let this video be a reminder to us not to make rash decisions on the road, and to slow down if we are unaware of the situation at bay. Also, we should never overestimate the abilities of the vehicle we are driving, regardless of whether it is a car or van.

    Charming looks, go-kart handling, and a cabin that delivers on usability mean the MINI One should be your ideal companion for the road Finding a life partner is no easy feat. It is only natural to look for someone who's sensible because household expenses can quickly spiral out of control with inflation rates the way they are today. But on the flip side, a fair amount of zaniness is also warranted, for added flavour during those holidays and weekends out. And of course, the fact that he/she i

    A cam car driver takes to social media to complain about a modded Hyundai i30 but do the complaints have any merit?

    A video of a Hyundai i30 nearly driving into a cam car has been uploaded on Facebook. But who really is at fault? Watch the video to decide.   Watch the video of how the incident unfolded here: In the video, the cam car is casually driving straight down Eunos Road, when the Hyundai i30 seen dashes out, almost causing himself a massive T-bone.  Luckily the cam car driver was quick enough to jam brake. The cam car driver then turns to the right lane, and according to

    P-plate Toyota Wish driver depletes all its demerit points in a case of reckless driving (where no hurt was caused)

    TL;DR – A Toyota Wish with p-plates dangerously cuts in front of a cam car, beats the red light and almost gets t-boned by another car   There’s a reason why car insurance companies charge a premium for new drivers. This 62-second video is one of the reasons: What happened? The video starts off by highlighting the exciting bits (think that’s the format SGRV is going for these days). A Toyota Wish dangerously cuts in front of the cam car and it looks like i
