Illinois Man Challenges a Semi on Highway, Loses BIG (Video)
Roads were a little slick coming in this morning. What did your Drivers Ed teacher say? Drive defensive, 10 & 2 and don't play chicken with a semi! My teacher didn't say that last part, but you know what I mean.
With temps getting colder and then warmer and then colder...slick spots and some dangerous driving conditions for sure! It's Feb in Illinoisa, driving conditions getting more and more dangerous with the high winds, always play some defense while driving.
When a semi is exiting the ramp and joining you on your stretch of highway it always makes me grip a little tighter, and I make sure I've given that driver PLENTY of space. With a vehicle that big you just never, ever know. That is when a video like this really hits home. Getting a little too close to a semi, or finding yourself on that stretch where they literally cannot soo you because of the size of their trailer....super scary.
This video was taken on Interstate 294 just outside of Chicago. The driver of the black car was changing lanes, and the semi did not see him. Fortunately no one was hurt, you can actually see the driver of the black car waving at passing car while BEING STUCK UNDER THE TRUCK and being dragged! Check this out:
My worst highway nightmare come true, yikes! Eventually this came to an end and the driver was in fact unharmed. Unreal!
Crazy that this dude wasn't hurt! This could have had a super bad ending for sure.
