    I dont see how the editor of the story could possibly think they could blame the truck in front driving on the shoulder. The hotshot is at fault for rearending.

    Because it wasn’t a news editor writing it. It was a sales marketer writing it to help sell Falcon Eye’s camera systems.

    Did that red van behind the RiteAid semi come across the divider and cut off the HotShot causing him to swerve and lose control?
    It just kind of appears rolling along at a really slow speed that couldn't have been behind the truck all along.

    Still.... have a cam and hold your lane.

    To me it looks like he was in the exit lane, tried getting back over and was going to fast. Between breaking to avoid rear ending the car and the swerving to get back on the main road he lost control.

    Perhaps.
    It's hard to see on a phone screen.
    Need to view it from a laptop or a desktop.

    It's hard to view on my desktop, because facebook doesn't allow zooming. If the Rite Aid semi or the car behind them did anything wrong, it was they were breaking hard. I didn't see that though, just the hotshot coming up on them fast and waiting until the last second the swerve.

    Again, a better viewer would be nice to zoom in a verify that, but I don't care enough to rip it and then open in VLC
