In NASCAR and racing, lid skids are spectacular and bring the crowd to their feet. Under other conditions, they can be terrifying.

Kennewick police responded to a two-vehicle crash on West Clearwater near the Leskovar Dealership Monday afternoon.  Just prior to 4pm, a Volkswagen Jetta was westbound, when it was slammed into by another vehicle.

Police say the VW driver was unhurt, suffering only bumps and bruises. Witnesses said they thought the 'trigger' vehicle perhaps 'gunned' the gas trying to get out into the fast moving traffic, and didn't see the car, slamming into it and sending it on it's roof.

No word if any citations issued.
