This extremely scary crash took place last weekend in Canada, after the driver of a white pickup truck cut off a semi truck that was running a yellow light.
While the semi might have been going a bit too fast, it’s clear that the contact with the pickup caused the accident. On the other hand, forcing a yellow light in a vehicle that can’t exactly stop on a dime can be risky. Either way, the worst part is what followedthe initial collision.
After clipping the pickup, the semi immediately veered off to the left, straight into stationary traffic waiting at the light on the other side of the road. The Honda crossover took a direct hit, to the amazement of the person driving the dashcam vehicle.
Unfortunately, the trailer toppled over and hit the cammer too. As everything came to a halt, we can see the driver remove the dashcam and proceeding to make a call on his mobile phone, probably to emergency services. We can also tell that his hands were shaking, which is only natural after this kind of experience, and that one of his fingers was bleeding – perhaps from broken glass shards from the right window.
Overall, he probably only suffered minor injuries. We hope that everyone else involved in this crash escaped with minor injuries (or, if possible, none at all) as well.
