Oh wow. Sucks! This is the reason I want to buy a good quality dash camera, just in case anything like that ever happened.

One distracted driver and another one not paying attention.... sorry for being the dick who points it out.... At the point where the vehicle starts rolling through the intersection there is a full 6 seconds.... at 60 MPH that translates 88 feet per second this leaves almost five hundred feet of clear roadway to slow down..... the vehicle you are driving does not slow down, it seems as you forgot about brakes.... could have been a moose and then it would have been body bags for sure....Glad everyone is okay though.
He is not wrong at all actually. THe more I watched it the more I noticed the same thing. Gotta be very mindful and pay close attention on these kinds of roads.

I disagree. The point at which that other vehicle entered the intersection in my mind was 1:02... Impact was at 1:05. I can't hear the audio or anything, but from strictly video I don't think I could have avoided it???

I agree with you. I watched the video in HD on my laptop and if you pause it just before impact you can see the guy in the dodge on a cell phone and completely oblivious to the fact he is about to get hit.

Doesn't matter, the guy pulling out did not have the time or space to make it. The camera truck shouldn't have had to hit the brakes at all because the other guy never should have been in the middle of the road.
Driver also explains in the comments that the camera could see around the snow bank better than he could due to it's positioning on the windshield.


The video is like a horror movie. Starts really slow with happy music that is creepy because you know something bad is going to happen. Then BAM!! You jump out of your seat.

Damn. Looks like the camera is up higher than drivers line of sight. Probably didn't see him til his nose came into the lane. Even on my iPod I can see the nose dip down from braking. Definately makes me think about getting a camera for my truck with how often people around here cant see bright red.

Doesn't matter if he shouldn't or should've been in the middle of the road. The facts of life dictate that he was there when he was there and the event which happened, happened. The only thing that could have been done about it is to have quick wit and to pay attention to everything happening around the road, and it is clear that neither of them had neither of those before the collision took place.

The driver's reaction time and decisions were good enough to save the lives of possibly everyone involved. The idea of people watching the video on their computer and saying "should've done this, should've done that" is bullshit. The guy did exactly what he needed to do. Trucks can be replaced, people can't.
