The driver is alleged to have no insurance.

California visiting Redditor /u/RiceILove shared dashcam footage from her Mom’s vehicle showing the terrifying moment on Interstate 91 in Corona, CA when a driver in a late ’90s/early ’00s Chevrolet Silverado crashed into her, causing her to spin and drive off-road.

Check out the frightening crash below.

The incident took place on I-91 in Corona, near Yorba Linda (Exact location on I-91 on Google Maps linked here.)

If you’re a Californian, you’ll know it’s been raining off and on for the past several weeks, this time no exception.

With the freeways slick and slippery, drivers, like the one that hit OP’s Mom’s car, presumably drives way too fast for conditions.

As you can see in the video, the 1999-2006 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra loses control and hits the side of OP’s Mom’s car.

Pinned in front of the Silverado, both lose control and spin out, the Silverado going left, and OP’s Mom going right off the emergency shoulder and into some brush.

“She and her passenger were both fine – just rattled,” OP confirms in the comments.

Her vehicle is, likely, severely damaged.

As for the offending speeder, that person fled the scene, committing hit-and-run.

Those in the comments, as mentioned, allege the driver probably had no insurance.

OP posted up his Mom’s video to the /r/OrangeCounty subreddit in hopes of ID’ing the other driver, but, so far, no luck.

“I’m an Uber driver in LA. Everyone was absolutely wilding on the freeways on Saturday night. I have never seen so much recklessness in pouring rain in my life. Passed 5-6 very very serious accidents as well. People are absolutely insane in SoCal,” /u/_MattyJoe commented.

“The 91 between Riverside and Corona is the absolute worst stretch of highway I have ever experienced. The bumps are like riding a horse,” /u/ColbyJackSteez added.

No one likes paying for car insurance, but it’s not like it’s optional.

Don’t be a d*** and drive without it.

As for the rain, it’s quite simple, slow down!

It’s easier said than done, especially when everyone else is still driving above the speed limit.

But, if you safely can get into the slow lane, driving 5 MPH below what you normally drive is the rule of thumb.
