The Abu Dhabi Police on Thursday shared a video of a distracted driver who failed to drive in her lane and crashed into the side of the road at an exit.

The video shows the driver slowly deviating from the right-most lane near an exit and heading into an off-limit yellow area before crashing into a road signage. The SUV then drives into the unpaved area between the highway and the exit, before jumping back onto the highway's right lane, going right across to the fast lane, and crashing at the other end.

Thankfully, the SUV did not collide with any other vehicle on the road.

The Abu Dhabi Police said the driver was distracted as she was using her phone.
