VIDEO: Driver thrown from car, video used to warn drivers

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WAVY) – The Ohio Highway Patrol is using dramatic video of a crash caught on camera to warn drivers to slow down when driving in winter weather.

The video captured on a patrol car dashcam in January shows an SUV and car collide on a slick, snowy road. Watch the video above closely and you will see the moment the driver of the car is ejected and lands in the middle of the road.

Highway Patrol posted this reminder on its Facebook page Tuesday:

“Crashes like this one from January serve as reminders to be careful when driving in winter conditions. Slow down, pay attention, leave distance between yourself and other vehicles and always wear your safety belt. Also, remember to #moveover for emergency vehicles!” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
