This unbelievably close call was captured and sent to us by BlackVue user Al. It only shows how important it is to always be able to record what’s going on while you’re on the road!
Chain reaction on the road
Al was driving home back from his lunch in Riverside, CA. He was driving on Central Ave. when a car hauling a trailer pulled up into the traffic on the opposite side of the road, divided by a landscaped median. This caused a chain reaction of other cars trying to avoid collision.
Missed by mere inches
This in turn caused a car to cross the median and come straight at Al’s vehicle, missing it by mere inches! As evidenced by the video, the car went straight through the brushes and trees on the median and into the oncoming traffic. Thankfully, no one got hurt. Al provided the footage from his fullHD BlackVue dashcam (you can buy the upgraded model of the one featured in the video, DR750X-2CH plus, here) to the oncoming car driver – hopefully it will help them deal with their insurance claim.
