Watch: Man causes motorway crash to save a woman’s life

The viral video shows the man risking his own life to save the woman.

A VIDEO showcasing an act of courage on a Dutch road has gone viral. The video shows how a man risked potential serious injury to himself to stop the uncontrolled vehicle.

The video, shared on social media platform Twitter, shows an out of control car with an unconscious woman behind the wheel and a fellow motorist sacrificing his car to save her.

The erratic car, which appears to be a Volkswagen, swerves off the road near a junction narrowly avoiding a traffic sign before continuing along the grass embankment and entering the slip road that joins the motorway from the right – scrapping the side of the car against the barrier at the side of the road.

Spotting that the car is clearly out of control, a white car, which looks like a Ford, pulls over towards the end of the slip road/slow lane and gets in front of the vehicle. The result is that the car gets smashed into by the unconscious woman’s car, finally bringing her vehicle to a stop.

The video, being filmed by another motorist, ends with the person filming the incident and the heroic man in the white car stopping to check on the woman.
