The incident, captured around 9:53 p.m., shows a white hatchback signaling to exit the road when a black sedan speeds up, attempting to merge into the lane. The sedan slams into the rear of the hatchback, sending it hurtling through the air, rolling multiple times before coming to a rest on its side.

A blue hatchback traveling in the opposite direction was also clipped, but the driver managed to maintain control of the vehicle. The black sedan, emitting sparks, briefly left the road before eventually coming to a halt.

The Queensland Police Service (QPS) confirmed that a 26-year-old woman from Loganlea sustained minor injuries in the crash. The driver of the sedan, a 19-year-old man from Moorooka, was issued a traffic infringement notice for careless driving.

The footage, shared on the Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page, has drawn numerous comments expressing shock and concern. One user praised the quick response of bystanders who rushed to the flipped car, while another remarked on the sudden chaos that erupted for unsuspecting drivers.
