Icy Accident Involving Semi and Three Vehicles

Occurred on November 14, 2018 / Golden, British Columbia, Canada Info from Licensor: “The guy ahead of me began jack knifing and I got on my brake. He hit the jersey barrier on the left, then right, jack knifed hard enough to pull the umbilical cord right out of the trailer. The lights went out and I actually thought he’d be in the granny lane. I was not 100% sure, so I was gambling on tossing my truck over the embankment on the right, but I didn’t like the idea of free falling 30 ft, so I gambled on him being in the granny lane and I chose the hammer lane. The problem was that he was diagonally blocking both lanes. After I hit him, another truck rammed my trailer, then another truck rammed me a few seconds later. All four of us walked out of that one alive and all I have to show for it is a scratch on my pinkie finger.”
