Dashcam Footage Shows The Moment A Distracted Motorist Accidentally Drove Into A River

Dashcam footage captured by an Australian man shows why it’s really dumb to be on your phone when driving.

Sydney man Adrian Hastwell-Batten was driving through heavy rain in Southern Queensland when he accidentally drove into a flooded river.
“I’ve just f**king crashed into a river dude,” he told the person he calling.

After a few choice words he managed to climb out of the window and onto the roof where he waited until a rescue crew arrived.

He was on the vehicle’s roof for about an hour before being retrieved by a water rescue team.
