A van tried to skirt past another driver and ended up going airborne in England.

Karma’s a … well, you know what karma is.

It seems like motorists never learn.

The latest example is a van that tried to skirt past another driver and ended up going airborne. And lucky for us, it was all caught on video.

The Daily Mail reports 35-year-old motorcyclist Andy Daynes just happened to have his helmet cam rolling when the silver Citroen van went all Dukes of Hazzard on a roadway just outside of Norfolk, England.

It seems the driver forgot the roundabout was there and slammed into it at a high speed, launching the van on the sloped edge.

“I pulled over along with some other drivers to see if he was OK,” Daynes told the Daily Mail.

Daynes said the driver appeared to be not too badly injured — just “a few cuts and bruises,” even though he had to be cut out of his vehicle.

“It is quite a bad roundabout, he just didn’t see what was coming because he was going so fast,” Daynes said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
