Dashcam footage of another driver waiting at a red light was captured at the moment the accident happened.

The Hyundai seems to miss the left turn it needed to make, slowing rapidly and taking a long, slow turn off what appears to be the middle or right lane of the road.

Jones’ limousine then sees the car moving too late and spreads out the Hyundai.

The Hyundai lifted off the road and spun sideways nearly 360 degrees, coming to a stop with oncoming traffic.

The footage then cuts to the parking lot of a Hyatt House hotel, which is just past the intersection, where Jones is speaking to witnesses and the driver of the silver car.

Both drivers appeared unharmed, although Jones was seen walking with a slight limp and lifting his left pant leg to examine himself.

The driver of the silver sedan could be seen putting his hand over his heart and his head in his hands, although he appeared physically unharmed.

In police video, Jones was heard saying to police, “He just got U-ed. He just U-ed right in front of me.’

Police cleared Jones of any wrongdoing in the case and asked Jones to “put the seat belt on properly.”
