A chilling incident that took place last week has been captured by a deputy sheriff's bodycam on Highway 84 near Valdosta, GA. The footage shows a female motorist's vehicle catapulting through the air after hitting a tow truck's ramp at high speed. Covering an estimated distance of 120ft in the air, the vehicle then flipped and crashed down onto another car.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, the 21-year-old woman from Tallahassee, driving the airborne vehicle, sustained severe injuries but miraculously survived the horror smash. The deputy from the Lowndes County Sheriff's department, who was attending to a separate crash on the opposite side of the highway, rushed to her aid.
The video captures the shocking moment as it unfolds. With a red tow truck in the frame, a black car can be seen passing, and a worker in a fluorescent vest steps in front of the stationary truck. Suddenly, the grey car smashes into the rear of the truck, launching into the air, spinning, and striking the black car in the right-hand lane ahead.
Upon witnessing the incident, the deputy sheriff promptly calls in the accident, dashing past strewn car parts to assist the young driver. The extent of the damage to the vehicles involved is visible in the footage, highlighting the severity of the crash.
The incident has drawn attention to Georgia's Move Over Law, which mandates drivers to change lanes or slow down when approaching stationary emergency vehicles. This law aims to prevent accidents like this and protect the lives of those on the roadside. While it is currently unclear if the driver will face charges related to the accident, this shocking event underscores the importance of adhering to road safety regulations to avoid such near-horrific incidents.
