Witnessing or experiencing a traffic accident can have a psychological impact on people. It can trigger feelings of fear, anxiety, and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), making it difficult to get over the incident.
Traffic accidents serve as a stark reminder of human mortality. They make us face the fragility of life and the potential dangers that exist in our daily activities, such as driving. One such horrible accident was recently caught on camera. Watch the creepy video here.
Car flying off a crane ramp at full speed caught on camera
The moment a car hit a tow truck ramp at high speed on a highway in Georgia, USA, and was thrown into the air, was caught on police body camera.
According to Good Morning America, the car sped down the highway toward a stopped tow truck as Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office deputies were already on scene responding to a traffic stop.
Before colliding with another car, he was lifted around 120 feet into the air. According to authorities, the driver of the car was a 21-year-old Florida woman from Tallahassee. She was seriously injured but managed to survive the incident, they added.
While police were still investigating what caused the collision, Lt. Crystal Zion told Good Morning America that drivers should “pull over, slow down, be careful and try to get rid of all distractions.”
What is the moving law?
The “move-in law,” which requires drivers to give a safe amount of space for emergency vehicles like ambulances and tow trucks, is present in most US states, including Georgia.
The transfer law is a traffic regulation that requires drivers to change lanes or slow down when approaching stopped emergency vehicles or other authorized vehicles on the side of the road.
The purpose of the transfer law is to provide a safe working environment for emergency services and personnel and to prevent accidents and injuries that can occur when vehicles pass too close to these stopped vehicles.
The moving law generally applies to emergency vehicles, such as police cars, fire trucks, ambulances, and tow trucks. It may also include other authorized vehicles, such as utility vehicles, highway maintenance vehicles, and sanitation trucks.
According to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Traffic Safety, Georgian law requires that drivers in the shoulder lane “must change lanes when emergency and utility vehicles are stopped at the shoulder of the road and are officially operating.” .
