Sometimes you’re good, and sometimes you’re extremely lucky. Enough luck and it can look like you’re just really good. Who knows which is the case for the driver of this Nissan Sentra, but what we do know is that she might want to replace her tires. And the driver’s seat.
It’s raining in Southern California. That means that roads are slippery. When you don’t get a lot of rain, then a layer of slippery oil and fluid can build up on the asphalt. Once that gets wet, it can be almost as slippery as ice. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone from the area, after all, it happens every time it rains. Drive to the conditions and everything should be fine.
Drive too fast, like the Nissan Sentra that comes flying down an on-ramp in this dashcam video, and things can get a little more interesting. The Sentra is clearly going faster than the other cars on the ramp, and that speed means that the car either loses traction or hydroplanes. It doesn’t matter which one it is because once the car starts to go, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
The car does a 180-degree spin, and it looks like the driver has managed to catch the slide, going straight backwards for a second. The car then spins back around and starts heading in the right direction. Briefly. While it’s hard to tell if it’s luck or skill, the fact that the car then veers directly into traffic (and the uploader says the car spun two more times) means that it was probably luck.
Fortunately, the uploader said that there were no injuries, and the only damage was some surprise and embarrassment. And maybe some Nissan upholstery.
Note: Video contains some mild language.
