Speeding Semi, Snowy Road, Perfect Recipe For An Accident

In case it’s been a while since you last saw an easily avoidable crash, we’ve got you covered.

The driver of this semi either wasn’t paying attention, which sounds unlikely when driving on a snow-covered road at night, or he completely misjudged the situation, failing to slow down on time.

As pointed out in the description, the truck was also heavy, which could have contributed to the accident, although the late braking is often the number one factor in these types of scenarios.

Right before the impact, you’ll notice a gap between that stationary semi on the right and the van in the middle of the road. If the driver at fault could have somehow steered between the two vehicles, he might have managed to stop before hitting anybody.

If he had made it through, he could have used the guardrail to slow down the semi, if conventional methods continued to prove ineffective.

      I don’t think the idiotic driver posted the video. I think Gopro did. And the driver who caused the accident should be in a lot of trouble. Unbelievable stupidity.

      • I DON’T KNOW HOW GOPRO WORKS. THEY HAVE ACCESS TO ANYTHING YOU RECORD?

        • Bo Hanan

          Correction! I think the police posted the video. I’m sure they grabbed the video when they arrived on the scene based on comments from victims/witnesses.

          • WELL IT’S GOOD TO KNOW IF YOU BUY AN ACCESSORY FOR YOUR CAR YOU’RE NOT AUTOMATICALLY LINKED TO THE ENTIRE WORLD. OF COARSE IF YOU BUY A TESLA THAT’S AUTOMATIC.
