Two trucks came recently within the hair’s width of crashing and rolling after being cut off by the Nissan Sentra in Richmond, Virginia.
The scene was recorded on a dashcam of one of the trucks involved and shows the moment that a black Sentra aggressively changed lanes in front of the maroon-colored truck, leaving just the few feet of space.
For some reason, this Nissan driver brakes heavily right in front of the truck, forcing this truck driver to slam on his brakes to avoid rear-ending and crushing a sedan. This move instantly locks up the truck’s brakes, sending it into the skid sideways along the motorway where it comes close to rolling.
Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, the truck following behind gets caught in the mayhem and is forced to steer off the road and along the grass embankment. Remarkably, it too remains upright.
So, on his Facebook page, the truck driver, Jonathan Herschberger, said the following: Well, probably one of the scariest incidents I have had one the road. Because of the wide angle lens on my dashcam everything looks farther away and than it actually is.
The Car jumped in front of me with not more than 12 feet clearance then slammed on the brakes, and couldn’t jump to the left because of another truck passing me, and it was either slam on the brakes or nail the vehicle.
I chose to slam on the brakes which caused me to start going into the jack knife, did my best to get out of a jack knife and I did get out of it but without a second to spare. Fortunately, the other truck driver saw what was happening, so moved to the left to avoid hitting me.
