‘When its raining you should reduce your speed to 2kmh dash cam drivers fault for driving in rain,’ one user commented.
‘Pity the speed just didn’t match the conditions.’
‘I’m just going to throw this one out there, and I realise that I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for it, but I’m going against the grain and blame the car that turned in front of the cam car. That’s just my opinion people,’ another person said.
Within hours of the video being uploaded it was viewed more than 44,000 times. Hundreds of people have chimed in with who they believe was at fault.
The caption of the video says that both cars were written off.
It said the driver appearing to be at fault took out a water main and a few restaurants had to be evacuated.
