This dashcam footage from Australia shows a Volkswagen Golf driver cross three lanes of traffic without checking for oncoming vehicles, resulting in a nasty (Hyundai i20-shaped) shock.

The clip shows the camera-equipped vehicle coming to a stop in the centre lane to allow the driver of the fifth-generation Golf to cross. However, she neglects to check the far lane … and quickly regrets it.

An oncoming first-generation Hyundai i20 slams into the German hatchback in what appears a pretty nasty collision. Here’s hoping nobody was seriously injured.
