A motorist miraculously escaped injury after the car he was driving crashed into water barrels and overturned on Interstate 25 in Fountain, Colorado – south of Colorado Springs – on January 13.
Local resident Jason Michael Bennett, who captured the incident on his dashcam, said he was traveling northbound on the highway when he witnessed a car in front of him veer out of the left lane and crash into the water barrels in front of a concrete highway divider near Exit 128.
Speaking to Storyful, Bennett said he stopped immediately to assist the driver, who was unharmed in the crash. Bennett activated emergency lights to alert other motorists and waited with the driver for paramedics to arrive.
A Colorado State Patrol representative said the water barrels are designed to lessen the impact of a crash and that they may have saved the driver’s life. Credit: Jason Michael Bennett via Storyful
