A violent rollover captured on camera was caused by a sneeze.

The driver had an allergy attack and started sneezing, then lost control of his SUV.

Sneezing can be dangerous when you're behind the wheel of a car. Your eyes close involuntarily when you sneeze, and according to one study, when you sneeze while driving you travel at least 50 feet. It's an accident waiting to happen, as the driver in the video above found out.

The 42-year-old driver of the SUV outside of Nashville is lucky. Good Samaritans rushed in to save to his aid, eight in total, and worked as a team to turn the car upright.

When the driver got out, he appeared dazed but was otherwise OK.

As he checked for damage to his vehicle, smoke began to pour out and there was a sudden eruption of flames.

The driver was not identified.
