Well this would sure get your attention! The driver in this video (who we cannot see) was just minding their business and driving through Las Vegas on the highway when a Freightliner towing an empty multi-car trailer jackknifed literally in front of them. The most amazing thing is how close the truck comes to taking out the car that the driver is operating but does not touch it. The rig does collect a little Toyota truck after it slides across the highway.
Who knows what the driver of the big rig was doing but it obviously was not the right thing. We’re not sure if the slowing traffic caused the truck driver to bury the brakes and jackknife the truck of if something else may have happened to precipitate the wreck but this is a bad one.
The clarity of the video and the fact you can see the truck driver basically along for the ride in front of the otherwise innocent car adds to the drama.
We think everyone walked away from this one. The driver of the little Toyota truck seems to have stuffed it pretty hard and we’re hoping he or she is OK as well.
