Chevy Truck Does A 180° Spin On Oklahoma Highway Leading To Chilling Close Call

Often, just cruising on the highway can be as enjoyable as being stuck in traffic when it comes to the amount of fun had behind the wheel.

But next time you complain about getting bored on the highway be grateful you don’t get to experience what an Oklahoma driver did. As he was driving along on the slow lane, a white Chevy pickup truck is seen in the fast lane just ahead of the cammer’s vehicle.

Keep your eyes on that truck as you watch the following dashcam video because that’s where all the action is. For a while, things look as boring as can be but just as the truck crossed an overpass the rear wheels skidded, sending the Chevy’s rear end into a slide. The rear-wheel-drive truck likely hit a patch of ice and since there was no cargo in the bed the light rear axle played a trick on the driver.

At first, it looked like the truck was going to hit the median but the driver managed to avoid impact by steering right. In doing so, the Chevy did a 180-degree turn which resulted in the truck driver getting close enough to the cammer to see the color of his eyes. Fortunately, though, the driver of the dashcam car slammed hard on the brakes as the truck started sliding towards him.

No doubt he was expecting the worst but thankfully all that happened was an extremely close call. From the looks of it, the vehicles didn’t make impact, though they were probably just an inch away from it.

Surprisingly, the cammer didn’t utter a word as the drama ensued — all we hear is the car’s radio. Then again, try saying something when a Chevy pickup truck suddenly veers towards you on the highway and you’re just an inch away from a head-on collision.
