WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Sky 9 hovered over the 495 Express Lanes on Tuesday morning looking at the traffic navigating the entrance near Springfield. Several minutes into filming, the helicopter crew spotted a Mini Cooper pull a dangerous maneuver.
In the video above, watch as the Mini Cooper traveling in the Express Lanes pulls up to the reflectors at the split, then reverses to keep driving onto the Express Lanes anyway. At one point, the car is very close to being hit by a car to its left.
Please use caution when using the lanes and DON'T back up your car ever! Multiple crashes have happened at northbound entrance to the Express Lanes since they opened this weekend.
