One of four friends, Marco Ferro, recorded the incident with his GoPro camera on a selfie-stick while they all cheerfully sang "Baby Come Back" while heading north on I-75 on a road trip from Miami to Los Angeles. The group was making the video for a friend who was upset that he couldn't come along.

But just when it seemed like the friends couldn't be having more fun, one of the tires blew out.

The driver, Sarah Green, told ABC that as soon as she heard the blowout the car began fishtailing from right to left. Green said was able to skid the car into the median on her immediate left to avoid a total spinout. Fortunately, nobody was injured during the accident, however Green's car was totaled when it struck a large storm drain.



"It grated the underside of my car like cheese and blew out all four tires," Green told ABC.

Green said she had just bought the used car a month earlier, and only had liability insurance. Since the accident, she is without a working vehicle.

Once the video went viral, one of Green's friends set up a GoFundMe page to help Green raise money for a replacement vehicle.

Green says she's been surprised by the reaction to the video, which has been viewed almost 2 million times, and hopes it serves as a reminder for people to be safe on the roads.
