Moment car flips through the air caught on dashcam in Wales

A motorist captured a horrifying car crash on his dashcam as he was driving along in Wales.

Norman Drinkwater was cruising along the B5381 between Trefnant and St Asaph when a car coming in the opposite direction lost control, went up the embankment and then somersaulted through the air before crash landing.

The terrifying incident occurred at around 11.30am on Saturday.



Speaking to the Daily Post, Norman said: "I was driving towards Trefnant when I saw a car lose control right in front of me - it was a terrifying sight.

"I passed by as the car was spinning in mid air to the side of me.

"It hit my car as it landed.

"I stopped and called the ambulance and the lady was taken to hospital as a precaution.

"She is a local lady and I spoke to her husband later on and he told me she they thought she may have injured her back but she was allowed home an hour later.

"It must've been really scary for her.

He added: "She's extremely lucky to be alive after that."

Police were called to the scene and closed the road for two hours.

According to Wales Online, a Welsh Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "An ambulance attended and a woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries as a precaution."
