This dashcam footage from Australia shows the driver of an E46-generation BMW 3 Series lose control of the sedan and crash.

The short clip shows the silver saloon about to merge ahead of a bakkie. However, thanks to a combination of the damp road surface, possibly worn tyres and perhaps even a slightly overeager right foot, the rear-driven sedan’s rear end steps out.

The driver overcorrects a touch and ends up spinning the vehicle, sending it slamming into the barrier and ripping off the rear bumper in the process. Here’s hoping nobody was seriously injured.

Watch the video above and take it easy out on the roads, folks...
