[07-05-23] Massive Car Crash Sees St. Petersburg Man Crawl Out of Upside-Down Vehicle

Yesterday saw one of the biggest car crashes you’ll likely witness this year in St. Petersburg, Florida. This occurred mid-day and saw two vehicles combine in the middle of the road. We’re not sure how this happened, but judging by the water trail left by the one car, it seemed to occur when going round a bend.

This led to the one car completely flipping upside down, and if you look – you can see the driver crawling out of the door. The other car didn’t look too good either, and had a massive dent in the side due to the collision. Such was the ferocity of the crash, it made various locals stop and look on in awe at the destruction.

This occurred on 1st Ave N/ 16th St N and although no one died, you’d expect there to be some injuries involved (barring a minor miracle). In the second photo, you can actually see the man who crawled out of their seat sitting down, so hopefully he was ok too.

However, not everyone was so forgiving – with one local saying this on social media: “Yes, people drive like idiots around here for sure. Also, the number of people I see walking against traffic signals in and out of crosswalks is bananas! Not to mention the scooters and E-vehicles that drive like zero laws apply to them is unbelievable. I’m actually surprised that more serious accidents aren’t happening at a greater pace.”

As mentioned though, it’s a good thing that there were no fatalities. However, this may have been down to luck more than skill. As always, drive safe and be aware on the roads.

Car accidents happen all too often in the United States. According to the U.S. Transportation Department, the number of traffic deaths nationwide surged in the first nine months of 2021 to 31,720. The number was 12 percent higher than the same period in 2020 and the highest nine-month figure since 2006.

The bustling cities of Florida are a hotbed for possible car accidents. Highways such as the I-4, US-1, and I-10, are some of the deadliest roadways in Florida and unfortunately provide many opportunities for potentially serious car accidents.

Following the nationwide trend, Florida car accidents have also been on the rise. According to the Florida Highway Patrol and Motor Vehicles database, statewide fatalities from crashes were up nearly 10 percent from 3,332 fatalities in 2020 to 3,629 in 2021. It was also ranked third most dangerous state to drive in, according to a report by Uplift Legal Funding.

There are many different types of car accidents, but multi-vehicle accidents are one of them. When two or more cars come together, accidents like this happen all the time. You have a good chance that three vehicles will be hit when two vehicles hit each other.

A variety of factors caused these collisions. Distracted driving, speeding, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, driving in bad weather, driving the wrong way, and failing to obey traffic laws are examples of dangerous behaviors.
