If you are a fan of the Kia Stinger, we’re going to warn you that watching the following video isn’t easy.
This dashcam footage from YouTube shows the moment a white Stinger was hit head-on while waiting to make a left turn at an intersection in Toronto, Canada.
Everything appears to be normal when all of a sudden, a Lexus (or at least it looks like a Lexus) SUV traveling in the opposite direction comes into view.

Look closely and you’ll see the SUV start to slowly drift into the lane of the Kia. Moments later, it slams directly into the front of the sedan, resulting in quite a hefty collision between the pair. The force of the impact sends the Stinger into the front of the vehicle with the dashcam.
In the moments after the impact, steam can be seen rising out of the Kia and SUV before two occupants of the Kia stumble out. The video cuts off before anyone is seen exiting the vehicle.
While we don’t have an official explanation as to why the SUV veered into oncoming traffic, there could be a number of different explanations. Perhaps the most likely scenario is that the driver was simply distracted while driving – possibly using a mobile phone while behind the wheel. Alternatively, the driver could have suffered a medical emergency or may have been driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Whatever the case may be, it’s pretty obvious that they will be determined to be at fault for the crash. For their sake, we hope that have a good insurance policy to ensure the Stinger can be repaired or replaced.
