Watch the moment a car crashes into a salon on a worker’s last day: ‘He could have died’

An employee captured the moment a car crashed outside her workplace on her last day, in a video that has been viewed over 7 million times.

Meredith, known online as @meredithinezz, shared her video on TikTok on August 17, after stunningly filming the accident and her reaction on camera.

The salon employee had created a “vlog” to send to her friends, talking about her last day at work and her excitement for her next venture. As she recorded herself talking in the living room, a loud crash could be heard, unsurprisingly, causing her to jump and quickly swing the camera away from her face towards the source of the noise. Video then showed that a car had crashed into the front of the living room, smashing all the windows.

“Of course this would happen on my last day,” she captioned the post, adding the hashtag #couldvedied.

In a second video, Meredith gave more details about what happened and who was responsible. She also confirmed that the salon did not open until six hours later.

“So basically I was taking a vlog to send to my friends in our group chat, and for everyone to ask me what I was going to say, I was just talking about my next job that I have planned and at how excited I am to get started,” she said.

“She was just an old lady and she is fine, everyone was fine, luckily there was no one sitting in the hall or anything so no one was hurt but no one knows what that happened.”

According to Meredith, they believe the driver probably accidentally pressed the wrong pedal while trying to start the car, meaning she drove full into the spot instead of backing up.

In 2020, there were nearly 48 million licensed drivers over the age of 65 in the United States, a whopping 68% increase from 2000, according to the CDC. It is also reported by the CDC that “age-related changes in vision, physical functioning, and the ability to reason and remember, as well as certain illnesses and medications, may affect some people’s driving abilities. old”.

Viewers of the video were shocked by the scene, and especially the fact that it was filmed, rushing to comment on the video.

“Comp workers for emotional distress,” wrote one TikTok user.

“Ma’am, you can’t park there,” another joked.

Another user noted, “That fact that this was captured is pretty epic.”

Newsweek contacted Meredith for a comment.
