    That was crazy.

    Guy of shoulder got blasted randomly by crash in left lane but if he wasn't there then that late last second lane change probably wouldn't have happened.

    Since the advent of dash cams. An awful lot of people don’t even attempt defensive driving.
    There was no reason the black pickup couldn’t have slowed to avoid hitting the trailer.
    “But he had the right of way”
    When I started driving in regards to right of way. My dad said “there is no sense in being right, if you are DEAD right”.

    Pick up could have avoided it. Probably on his cell phone not paying attention. Other guys trying to be courteous. Easily avoidable.

    Looks for one someone typically changing lanes without looking and then the pickup doing the usual speed up to keep a vehicle from moving over
