Dramatic moment hire car inexplicably turns into traffic and causes a head-on crash

  • Driver of a blue hire car crosses road in to the path of a white car in Scotland
  • White car smashes in to the hire car after it turned directly in front of it on A904
  • The four occupants of the cars in Bo’ness are not badly injured due to seat belts 

The driver of a hire car does not see a white car on the opposite side of the road before it turns in to the path of oncoming traffic.

When the driver of a blue hire car indicates right to leave the A904 in Bo’ness, Scotland, they do not seem to realise the other side of the road is not clear.

Instead of waiting for a gap in traffic to cross the road to make their right turn they slowly drive in to the path of oncoming cars.

The force of the impact sends it backwards as the entire front of the vehicle is destroyed when it tries to turn right off the road

Before the driver of a white car, travelling at speed towards them, has time to break there is a dramatic smash.  

With the blue car facing horizontally across the A904, towards the road the driver was trying to turn on to, the front left-hand side of the vehicle is hit.  

The force of the impact sends it backwards as the entire front of the vehicle is destroyed.

Airbags in both vehicles are immediately deployed.  

Another car just about to make a right hand turn on to the A904 is forced to pull over as traffic comes to a standstill to check those inside the cars are not hurt.

Fortunately the four people involved in the collision walk away from the accident with no serious injuries as they are all wearing seat belts.

Jess, who caught the collision on her dashcam on May 11, told Newsflare: ‘My reaction was one of disbelief that they somehow missed seeing the oncoming car, and concern for the occupants of both cars.

‘Luckily the airbags were triggered in both vehicles and everyone was also wearing seatbelts which prevented it being a much more serious accident for the four casualties.’
