    doesnt look like much damage to either vehicle and not high speed. If it was high speed for either vehicle, that pickup and semi wouldnt be cuddling like that. pickup looks intact for the most part. Semi needs new hood, bumper, front springs and hangers and a few ball joints. maybe tie rod. So im gonna take a pass on attempted suicide. Unless that guy in pickup likes to kill himself in slow motion.

    so an oncoming semi truck moved into the center lane to avoid it. All of a sudden, the pickup swerved back towards the proper lane, colliding with the semi truck in the center turn lane as a result.
    Stay in your lane.

    And some jerk lawyer will try to say the semi was in the wrong lane and caused the accident. Better to slow down as fast a can be done safely and hit the right shoulder if there is one.

    BS!! That F-Series pickup is crumpled OUTWARDS. Offset collisions are usually the worst (and most common). The driver is in life threatening condition at the hospital!

    calm down. wow.
    thats not a bad accident imo. Life threatenng injuries doesnt take much if not waring seat belt.especially wen side swiping drivers side and hitting steer axle. So calm down buddy its an opinion and you dont have to get so upset about. Just look at thenext post and move on
