Absent-minded driver slams into stationary traffic

Updated: 

Disturbing footage has emerged from Australia that shows an inattentive driver plough his car into a number of stationary vehicles.

The dashcam video, which was recorded in Melbourne on April 5, shows a Ford Falcon approaching a junction where a large number of cars have stopped at a red light.


The driver seems to not take any notice of the traffic, and proceeds to crash straight into the back of one of the vehicles, with the impact leading to another three cars being damaged.

It's unclear how the driver of the Ford failed to see the cars at the junction, but it seems they did not even attempt to apply their brakes. The car also appears to drift from one lane to another just before the incident.

The video doesn't reveal if anyone was hurt in the crash, although American car blog CarScoops reports that the footage was handed to police.
