A small flatbed pickup truck is seen from a dashcam in the car behind it. As it exits a roundabout, it seems to slip in the rain and awkwardly drive off the road into some trees. The creator of the video asks viewers what they believe went wrong. See what you think in the video below.


This clip, uploaded by @insidemotors, is the subject of some opinions, remarks and comments on TikTok.

"He was too fast on the roundabout," writes commenter @rekikurdish. "He should slow down."

"Oil patch maybe with no tread on the tires," suggests @knowlesdan90. "Acceleration and ditch."

"The satellite navigation said make a u-turn," jokes @davidleeke.

"He spotted some scrap metal in the bushes," quips @robertwatkins572.

Video viewer @myth_starseed surmises that "he zigged when he should have zagged."

"Rear wheel drive," notes @harryblack613. "It was trying to put down too much power on a wet road."
