When you watch the following video, you won't be able to ignore the accurate premonitions that the man recording it has. To be fair, it's not too hard to predict what will happen when you see someone driving upwards of 70 MPH the wrong way down the highway. And the worst thing that could happen, did.
"This is going to be bad," the gentleman filming the high-speed hijinx in Collins, MS, on July 8 says. "This is going to be nasty," he repeats later before telling what sounds like children to close their eyes and not look. Just moments later the inevitable happens:

Miraculously, the driver going the right way, Amy Cox, walked away from the crash unscathed, reports WLBT-TV. So did her young female passenger. The driver going the wrong way, Edward Fairley, was a little worse off: he was taken to the hospital with a broken shoulder and other non-life threatening injuries. He told police he doesn't remember anything and a motive is unclear. He was charged with reckless driving and other charges are pending following toxicology reports.
"Unfortunately, we see that all the time. It's not just the state of Mississippi, it's all over," local Police Chief Ronnie Dickinson told WLBT.
