FAYETTE COUNTY, Penn. (WTAE) — How many times have you been behind a driver who is all over the road?

That was the scary sight for two men in Pennsylvania who captured the predictable crash on camera — then, frighteningly, became a part of it.

Kevin Denney and Kaecieo Bass were in their work truck on Route 21 this week when they saw an erratic motorist.

They started recording her behavior with their cellphone, but apparently did not call 911 to report the dangerous driver.

“She was swerving in and out. She would go off the road and she would come back out, then she would go back into the other lane. It kind of scared us a little bit,” passenger Kaecieo Bass said.

This went on for three minutes.

“Slow down a little bit. I don’t want to be involved in an accident,” the videographer tells the driver.

At one point, the erratic motorist swerves into oncoming traffic, forcing a truck to hug the far side of the road to avoid her.

“I started actually praying for her and everybody else on the road and making sure sure — praying, hoping everyone would be OK,” Bass said.

But just a minute after that, the driver turns right in front of an oncoming vehicle.

They slam together and the second car comes flying at the car carrying the videographer.

“I knew she was going to get hit when she cut that car off. It just happened so quickly,” driver Kevin Denney said.

Denny and Bass both emerged from the crash unharmed. The two other drivers were taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

It’s still unclear what caused the driver to behave so erratically.

State police are investigating the crash. There’s no word yet on if the driver will face any charges.
