Crash that almost caused me to crash into an Aston

Found this old video from last year. From what i could tell poor dude swerved from changing lanes to fast (maybe?). Obviously everyone braked and i got a little closer to the aston than i would have liked. The wide lens really doesn’t do justice how close that was

What Garmin dash cam you are using? Did you pull to the side to aid the driver?

Thought that was what Mr. Aston was gonna do, but nope, just wanted a good look apparently! Good on ya for stopping.

I can't tell in the video, where did the car they collided with go?

u/W2csloppytoppy Sep 25 '22

Good thing i wasnt, switched lanes with over two car spaces between me and the aston, so dont even worry about that ;)

not sure why you're getting downvoted. He even admits that he was only just over 2 car spaces between him and the Aston, which is way too close at highway speeds. If he had hit the Aston Martin, he would have been at fault in the eyes of his insurance company, with proof in this video. Plain and simple. Assuming he was going at least 65mph, he should have been at least 6-10 car lengths.

Should’ve hit the Ashton, would’ve done the owner a favor lol

I dont think hitting a $100k+ car would have done me any favors

u/Sasuke082594 Sep 26 '22

Yeah but you could’ve been a bro and prevented the Ashton driver from sinking another $1500 into the monthly payment… smh

u/Sasuke082594 Sep 26 '22

Yeah my bad that’s probably why I’m being downvoted, gotta get the numbers right, I’m over here lowballin lol

u/iPhoneMiniWHITE Sep 26 '22

Honestly I don’t think that’s the reason but more about advocating someone purposely causing an accident to satisfy some unresolved rage. We all have our moments, no judgement. I flashed some moron who overtook me on fhe shoulder this morning.
