Four Vehicle Collision After A Sudden Stop #CaughtOnBlackVue

Today’s video shows that even the quickest of reflexes and defensive driving can sometimes be useless in the face of unpredictable events on the road.

Hit from behind

The story unfolds as BlackVue customer Wayne recounts the incident involving his wife and 2.5-year-old granddaughter aboard their Toyota Hilux. A car ahead paused to make a right-hand turn into a house, prompting a sudden halt. With ample space between their vehicle and the one in front, they came to a stop, following all traffic regulations diligently. However, an SUV behind them failed to brake, hurtling into the back of their Hilux at a speed of around 40km/h.

Dash cam shows how it really happened

The impact triggered the deployment of airbags in the SUV, but the repercussions didn’t end there. The force of the collision propelled their Hilux into the car in front, subjecting the occupants to a double impact. Miraculously, no one sustained serious injuries.

The BlackVue dash cam footage became a crucial piece of evidence in navigating the insurance process. Initially required to pay the excess, Wayne swiftly submitted the front and rear dashcam footage to the insurer, providing undeniable proof of the sequence of events. And then just last week the insurer reached out to him with news of reimbursement for the excess.

For Wayne, the investment in the BlackVue dash cam proved to be a decision worth its money and more. Streamlining the insurance process and providing irrefutable evidence, the dashcam epitomized the saying that “a picture paints a thousand words.”
