This is scary and unexpected. Let's be real careful out there.

But it wasn't from a police camera. It was from a civilian video camera.

Did you notice the bang after the big accident? That truck probably hit someone else, too.

I saw this on another web site. Was told it was from Russia. Apparently to dispute auto accidents its pretty common for people to install dash cams there.

Thats horrible though: as I'm sure at first the guy thought, "Crap I smashed the side of this truck and probably gona end up in the ditch" Then as he crossed into on-comming traffic and saw the semi is when the praying probably started. Doubt he got to Amen though.

Not always, I think the poor bugger hit black ice and was thrown for a loop. The stuff is invisible and deadly. It happens a lot on bridges and overpasses when the temperature is hovering around 32F (0C) and is completely unpredictable.

A few months ago my wife and I were coming back from Campbell River on hwy 19 and a car in front of us, doing about 35 in a 65 zone, hit black ice and made the fatal mistake of nailing the brakes. The car ricocheted from one concrete divider to the other all along the bridge we were crossing.

The car in front moved over and he was on the back corner of the cube truck.. I think the the resulting airstream screwed with his and he lost traction.

Also saw this on another web site and it said it was in Russia.
Not police, no time & date stamp, no recorded speed, etc.
Horrible how the SUV literally explodes.

I have driven many years in weather like this and I can tell you that the heavy accumulation of snow and slush in the middle section between the lanes was the beginning of the end result. if you ever get into that stuff going those speeds it doesn't take much to lose control of your vehicle due to the heaviness of the crap on the roadway.

Just my opinion and observation on where the vehicle was driving and how it reacted when the driver veered left first then overreacted when the vehicle was pulled into the crap.

The slush got him. I plow snow for a living out on the Interstate. You will see us on the centerline of the road. We try to plow off the middle where the stripes are located. On the next round, we get the other lane and the whole road is clear. Watch out for the plows. We have to be at least taking 1/2 of the road at a time. If you don't .............. that is what happens. The slush in the middle will pull your vehicle and it is hard to control. No one died on my roads this year....... I had a lot of close calls with vehicles trying to pass me though. for some reason, they think the road ahead is as clear as the road I just plowed........... strange.

does look like the driver lost his concentration for a hearbeat which landed him in the slurry in the middle of the road, followed by his "oh s..t" moment, followed by a hard pull of his steering too the right, That lands him into the right side of the panel truck, followed again by a hard pull to the left to correct which lands him in the front of the semi. Three major driving errors, all recoverable, which leads to the collsion. Tragic
