WATCH: Muscle car loses back axle on Alberta road

WATCH: Dashcam footage posted online shows the back axle of a muscle car become completely detached from the vehicle.

EDMONTON — Astonishing dashcam footage posted online shows the back axle of a muscle car becoming completely detached from the vehicle.

The video captures what appears to be a red Dodge Dart passing the vehicle with the dashcam before jerking and halting in the right lane.

The back end of the car bounces upwards and the back axle – with both rear wheels – breaks off and is left in the middle of the road.

RCMP confirm the incident happened in Stony Plain, a town just west of Edmonton, on May 11, 2015.

The jaw-dropping footage was posted on YouTube and the Shoutout Edmonton website.

Stony Plain RCMP say no charges were laid.
