DALLAS Dramatic video of an 18-wheeler as it careened out of control on the Dallas North Tollway. The images, provided by a North Texas Tollway Authority traffic camera, show the Pepsi truck driving in the southbound lanes at Beltline Road Wednesday afternoon when a car apparently cut it off. The truck driver over-corrected and crossed the concrete median barrier, ending up on its side sliding in the northbound lanes. Before it was over, six other vehicles were involved in the wreck, but somehow there were no serious injuries....

Yep. It was pretty wild.
Wow that is truly something from an action movie... I hope everyone survived.
That barrier wasn’t for the truck. Amazing.
Here’s the video link to save everyone a trip to a blog:
Looks like the person in the silver car is gonna be in big trouble.
But I didn’t see any overcorrecting. The truck was simply run off the road by the car. However, I would have liked to see a few seconds ahead of where it starts.
Thank God no-one was killed.
Catch the wave.
The car was fishtailing before it crashed into the semi.
Looks like the gray 18 car blew a left front and forced the Pepsi truck up into the wall.
Before it was over, six other vehicles were involved in the wreck, but somehow there were no serious injuries. THANK GOD!!!!
No serious injuries.....
Dry rot is a problem down here. And we keep older cars because we don't use salt on the roads.
NASCAR has nothing on that accident.
Could have been silver car road rage. The oncoming car is lucky to have a clear shot at changing lanes. Amazing.
All I get is a big box with a little box in the upper left-hand corner. I hate my computer.
Another reason to tear along the dotted line in the RIGHT lane.
It's like the author didn't even watch the video. That's NOT what happens on screen.
I drive a semi in a metro area. At least twice a day somebody in a car does something like that. I scream at the top of my lungs, “How did you not see the BIG F_ _ KING TRUCK!!!” Usually the person is on a cellphone but not always. That no one was killed in this is a tribute to the rig driver, and God.
I did see overcorrecting by the silver car. The slam hit was a result of overcorrection. Had to have been a woman driver. LOL
