The dangers of fast lane changes by others

Don't know if this was taken from a big rig or MH but it was not good for anyone involved.

This could happen to anyone driving a MH or any other vehicle when someone else does something stupid.

Sorry I don't have the original link.

I can tell you it is much more impressive when you are where the camera was or,,,, worse yet.. The stopped truck (Been in both places)

Of the two the Camera's is the nicest one though (no damage to my car)

True story.. Going to work one snowing aftrnoon I am in the 2nd left lane as this lane is the one that leads to where I work (others go off in other directions,, This one goes to my job).. Accident, SUV sideways blocking 2 left lanes.. Traffic comming up fast in 3rd left lane so I can not move right,, I stop.. 1st alphabet (Like a K car) car zips past

Second likwise

3rd.. And after this there is a break more than big enough for me,, zip past.. Suddenly the bit SUV is on the shoulder (The K-size car is on the other shoulder).. Very impressive.

And what's more my whole office was watching on remote.. I got it "Live and in color with full sound effects". (They only get video).
Home is where I park it!

Another demonstration of driving without knowing what is going on in lanes ahead. I see it many times daily in SoCal where the freeways are full of these types. I don't think the driver did to well in this situation.

In reading the comments on that link, the driver fully recovered from the accident…hard to believe but that's what was stated and there's a news link in there that also stated the same.
