A VAN driver was seen charging around a high-speed bend only for it to all go horribly wrong.
The video, uploaded to the TikTok channel UK_Dash_Cam_Shorts, shows why it’s so easy to get it wrong when driving too fast.
As the TikTok channel’s name suggests, the video was shot using a dash cam in a car, showing its forward view.
It begins on a two-lane road, suggesting that the speed limit could be as much as 70mph.
The road is bending around to the left as the video starts and the camera car is making its way along the inside lane.
Immediately a van is seen passing the camera car at high speed and moves into the inside lane ahead.
As it does, the van starts to spin and it begins to drift around the corner at speed.
For a moment it looks like the van driver has caught the slide and will be OK, but it quickly turns out they haven’t.

In fact, the van driver over-corrects and the van swings the other way slamming into the barrier head-on.
The van then comes to a stop in the middle of the road and the camera car carries on past.
There are various reasons why the van could have lost control and hit the barrier.
Its tyres could have been worn out resulting in a lack of grip, or the van could have been empty.
With no weight over the rear wheels, a violent left turn and coming off the accelerator will throw the weight forward, sending it into a spin.
