It's really weird haha. Couldn't make sense of it

What's so mysterious?!
It is obvious that the ghost car driver and his vehicle were teleported up to an alien spacecraft at some point in the past. Through with their experiments and observations, they teleported both back to Earth. It is apparent that the teleporter operator was very poor in selecting the precise location and time at which to conduct the return of the kidnapped person and his car to Earth...it was put in the path of the BMW! Since it was done from so very far away, who can blame him, though?!

I'm not 'a believer', but in my twenties I knew two sisters who lived in a house (which their father purchased after a bank repossession) in which the former resident family simply vanished, leaving a dinner on the table! Religious fanatics after a 'revelation', or aliens in action, or FBI witness protection at work?!

Going to be a killjoy here...
Watch, before the bmw even moves, behind the white truck. The guy came shooting down the suicide lane(far right)then hits the car. The timing is almost perfect. As the bimmer turns, it is in sync with the car, obstructing it from the camera.

You can also see a quick reflection of headlight past the lane just before the bmw initiates the turn.

But I like wilt's explanation better.

It is just a case of perfect timing. On the youtube video I watched, you could just barely see the trunk of the "ghost car" above the trunk of the BMW about 26 seconds into the video when it's in slow motion. Still pretty cool effect.
