    This truck driver’s dash cam captures the moment that an out of control SUV slams into one truck travelling at highway speeds, then ricochets into his truck. Fortunately, everyone survived this crash.

    You can hear the driver at the end breathing hard. As for the warner truck he made out of it decent from the looks of impact he lost 2 tires and did a good job of keeping control of the truck.

    Illinois should ve had cables or guard rail in the median. This probably could have been prevented. Good to know that everyone was ok

    Interesting. Had he fallen in behind Werner he would have been a witness only on that one.

    Fate and coincidence are curious things.

    Amazed the occupants of the SUV were not killed.

    I'm impressed he kept it all more or less straight and on the road. I'm willing to bet it was a little more than a couple tires though. He's probably looking at bent axles/suspension damage, possible frame damage as well.

    Driving for the conditions would have prevented that crash. There was a lot of water on the road, the jeep driver learned the hard what hydroplaning is all about!

    Did anyone see the 2nd car? Watch and you can see a white car hit the shoulder in front of the black truck.

    Good eye. I never saw that until you pointed it out. Whoever was in that jeep is seriously lucky to be alive.
