Car Tries to Change Lanes with No Room and Ends Up Flipping Over

Dramatic dashcam footage has emerged showing a car flipping onto its roof following a misjudged manoeuvre.

The incident, which is believed to have taken place in Dongguan, in China's Guangdong Province last Saturday, began when the blue Volkswagen Passat attempted to change lanes, but was blocked by the approaching camera car.

Not taking no for an answer, the driver of the VW made a second attempt to move into the far right lane, turning sharply to fit through the small gap in the traffic.

Unfortunately the gap was too small for the saloon to fit through, and after being struck by the dashcam-equipped car, it smashed into the concrete barrier and flipped onto its roof.

Sparks flying, the Volkswagen slid along the road before eventually coming to a stop with its hazards on and wheels still turning.
