Ford F-150 Lightning Causes Havoc At Car Wash: Video

We’ve certainly seen our fair share of car crashes over the years, many of which involve the Ford F-150. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise given the fact that this particular model has been one of the most popular new and used vehicles on earth for decades, but we continue to see folks do silly things behind the wheel such as smash into other Blue Oval models on the highway for no apparent reason, fly through residential areas (quite literally), and even crash into retail stores and go straight through brick walls like the Kool-Aid man. However, its all-electric counterpart – the Ford F-150 Lightning – isn’t immune to this phenomenon either, it seems.

In fact, as we can see in this video, a Ford F-150 Lightning recently caused quite the pileup at a busy car wash that left a large number of vehicles damaged in a mere split second. The EV pickup was in line to enter the car wash behind a few other vehicles, and was approaching the entrance slowly – in fact, it had come to a complete stop – before disaster struck.

It’s unclear what, exactly, took place here, but it seems as if the driver of the Ford F-150 Lightning hit the accelerator a bit too hard, which sent the pickup smashing into the van in front of it. The impact was great enough that it caused a chain reaction, sending the van smashing into the car in front of it, which then led to multiple vehicles rear-ending each other inside the car wash itself.

Alright, which one of you did it?

As for the Ford F-150 Lightning, it careened off to the side and came to a rest on another car that was parked nearby, tilted up in the air. The driver looks quite stunned in the video, which is understandable, particularly given the fact that they’re likely going to be having a very uncomfortable call with their insurance company after the fact.
