An SUV crosses the highway in gliding flight!

In the USA, the occupants of an SUV must have had the fear of their lives after literally flying over the center splitter!

Motorists traveling this highway near Las Vegas must have been at least as scared as the occupants of this Toyota Highlander!

Improvised glide flight

The images were filmed by a dashcam and posted on social media by the Nevada Highway Patrol. We see the imposing SUV skid in its lane before hitting the central separator. With speed, the shock blows up and spin the Toyota Highlander in the air. When landing, he finds himself on the other side of the highway!

If luckily it lands on its wheels, it then ends up in the reverse flow of traffic. To avoid it, a happily attentive driver is forced to swerve. The SUV then continues to skid before exiting the dashcam’s field of vision.

Rain as the culprit

After this accident, the police indicated that the wet pavement was probably the cause of the loss of control of the vehicle. The police thus declared: “We are of course happy to take a break from this heat and to have rain, but we ask everyone to slow down while driving in these wet conditions”.

In the United States, as elsewhere, be careful when the road is wet. The grip becomes much more precarious which can lead you to situations that are at the very least uncomfortable.
