SpaceX Rocket Launch Results in 3-Car Accident — "WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE"

From SFGate:

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

A SpaceX rocket that soared over a Southern California freeway Friday generated plenty of "oohs" and "aahs" — and a three-car pile-up.

The rocket, dubbed the Falcon 9, was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 5:27 p.m, leaving a brilliant streak across the sky.

Later that evening, a YouTube user with the screen name Mark Sales posted a video of three cars colliding (above) as the rocket passed overhead.

The short clip was filmed along Interstate 10 in Banning via a dashboard-mounted camera, according to the Los Angeles Times. A man and children can be heard in the video, commenting first on the rocket and then on the unfortunate drivers ahead of them. The car that recorded the crash was unscathed.
