This is the moment a woman driver veers across two lanes and crashes into a barrier before tumbling off the overpass and landing on the pavement below.

Reports said the Subaru Forester SUV driver, an unnamed 50-year-old woman, was filmed driving off the overpass near the Livoberezhna metro station in the northern Ukrainian capital Kiev.

Local media said the SUV rammed the fence at speed and fell onto a pavement below the overpass.

Fortunately, there were no pedestrians walking on the pavement at the time and only the 50-year-old driver, who was hospitalised with a head injury, was hurt in the incident, according to local media.

However, the police reportedly cordoned off the area as there was a risk of the vehicle exploding.

The Kiev police shared a video of the accident on social media where the driver is seen suddenly veering across two lanes before crashing into the barrier.

The SUV then tips over the top of the fence and drops off the overpass to the ground below.

There have been no further updates on the woman driver’s condition after she was hospitalised with a head injury.

The local authorities have yet to confirm that they are investigating the accident.
