This is the moment a woman driver slams into a brand-new Cadillac causing it to flip after crashing through a barrier as her hubby shouts from the passenger seat.
The accident happened on Wolong Avenue in the city of Xiangyang in Central China’s Hubei Province on 2nd June.
Dashcam footage from the couple’s Ford saloon shows the wife, surnamed Cao, ignoring a road marking arrow and merging illegally onto the main thoroughfare from a side road.
However, instead of turning onto the outermost lane, Cao cuts across several lanes and leaves her husband questioning her driving.
In the video, he can be heard saying: “Slow down. Why are you making such a wide turn?”
As his wife continues to drive straight towards the traffic barrier in the centre of the thoroughfare, the husband screams: “Go over there!”
He then repeatedly shouts: “Brake!” as his wife panics, steps on the accelerator pedal instead, and crashes into the opposite lane.
The dashcam video shows their Ford hitting the side of the white Cadillac saloon, flipping over the car carrying four people.
According to Cadillac owner Li, who was identified by his surname, he and his three passengers ended up some 100 feet away.
Images show the white saloon, which had been purchased just five days earlier, with all its airbags deployed and with visible bloodstain on them.
The occupants were taken to hospital and suffered no life-threatening injuries.
Cao told police: “Everything is a blur.”
Her husband said: “Let me explain. She made a huge turn over here. Any normal person would’ve just made a regular turn, but she turned all the way over here.
“I asked why she was making such a big turn. She panicked and then stepped on the accelerator. I saw her stepping on the pedal.”
The authorities said the accident was caused by Cao’s decision to follow a taxi which had also ignored the road markings and illegally merged onto the thoroughfare.
Further investigations are ongoing.
