A driver traveling in a Saturn on Interstate 95 in Florida crashed into a Mazda after spinning out of control at high speeds, Florida Highway Patrol is reporting.
The crash left a 36-year-old man seriously injured.
A dashboard camera from inside a car following the Saturn captured the moment on camera. The crash captured on camera is helping authorities investigate the crash.
“The car begins to merge right into another lane without signaling but is forced to abort at the last moment as a speeding car nearly causes a collision.
The sudden correction causes the Saturn to spin out, and the car briefly travels backward, just like in an action flick. Despite trying to control the car, the driver crashed into a 2010 Mazda car. The impact of the crash left the Mazda structurally damaged and the Mazda driver critically injured,” troopers said.
The driver managed to avoid making contact with all other cars except a Mazda, though they came incredibly close
The Saturn eventually came to a halt after hitting the median and a guardrail.
First emergency responders arrived shortly after the accident happened. The victim that was driving the Mazda was taken to the hospital.
The FHP said what ended as a two-car crash could have been a fatal multi-vehicle crash.
The investigation is ongoing, troopers said.
The temporary closure of all lanes on the I-95 as a result of the severity of the crash is causing traffic delays. Vehicles on this route are pulling to the roadside to allow crews work. Alternate routes would be to take the Florida Turnpike or Military Trail.
Please drive with caution and stay safe.
