The Oklahoma Highway Patrol shared dashcam footage that shows the young driver’s car enter the Muskogee Turnpike and clip the semi before swerving out of control and into another vehicle.

After an 18-year-old driver spun out of control in a crash on an Oklahoma highway, her dad shared the dash cam video that shows what happened “for training purposes,” police say.

The 24-second video, posted to Facebook by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, starts with the moments leading up to the three-vehicle crash on the night of May 10.

The video shows the driver closing in on the end of the merging lane of the highway while a semi truck was in the right lane.

Then, about 10 seconds in, the merging lane ends and the car starts cutting in front of the semi — but the two vehicles collide, the video shows.

“She failed to yield to a semi while merging onto the highway...,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

Loud bangs can be heard as the two drivers hit each other and the 18-year-old goes “spinning out of control,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

She crashed into a lane divide before bouncing back and veering into a red car that was near the semi, the video shows.

Everyone who was involved in the crash on the Muskogee Turnpike is “OK,” KFOR reported.
