Can you believe there was ever a time when we had to drive past the wreckage of a recent car accident to rubberneck at it? I almost wish I could go back ten years and tell everyone the good news about dash cams, which bring the horror of high-speed collisions straight to you.
Anyway, here’s a hair-raising highway wreck video from Belgium, where motorist Jasmien Claeys swung her Ford across several lanes of traffic in a last-minute attempt to catch an exit. Instead, she slammed into a stopped truck and got pulverized by a second, oncoming truck.
Miraculously, Het Laatste Nieuws reports, Claeys survived the double impact with just two broken vertebrae and a shattered hand. She faces a long rehabilitation, though we’re guessing that’s preferable to being crushed to death.
