Video: Nissan Sentra Almost Rear-Ended By A Truck

“Car jumped in front of me with not more than 12 feet clearance then slammed on the brakes,” the truck driver says.

Nissan Sentra caused mayhem in Richmond, Virginia by almost crashing into a truck. During the cut off by the Nissan driver, two trucks came very close within a hair's width of crashing.


The footage from the dashcam of one of the trucks involved shows how aggressively the Sentra driver changed lanes in front of this huge truck.


When the Nissan driver braked heavily, the truck driver also slammed his brakes to avoid a massive accident which would have crushed the Sentra.


By slamming the brakes, the wheels of the truck locked up and skid along the motorway. At the same time, another truck which was following behind joined the party and the driver did an amazing job to steer the truck off the road.


Jonathan Herschberg, the truck driver posted on his page about the incident. "Probably one of the scariest incidents I've had one the road. Because of the wide angle lens on my dashcam, everything looks farther away than it actually is.


"Car jumped in front of me with not more than 12 feet clearance then slammed on the brakes, couldn't jump to the left because of another truck passing me, so it was either slam on the brakes or nail the car.


"I chose to slam on the brakes which caused me to start going into a jackknife, did my best to get out of the jackknife and I did get out of it but without a second to spare. Luckily the other truck driver saw what was happening and moved to the left to avoid hitting me.


"Car kept on going like nothing happened although I'm almost sure I bumped it because my collision sensor activated on my dashcam and I thought I felt it bump but didn't have any visible damage on the front of the truck. How both or rigs stayed upright is still a mystery to me because of my truck and trailer were both sliding."
