VIDEO: Drive To The Conditions


According to Wolfy77, this accident was recorded on January 29, 2015, on Interstate 80 westbound at mile marker 93. The truck in the video is an empty flatbed.

The video’s description states, “Snow had been falling about 30 minutes or so, when yet ANOTHER driver wanted to be FIRST. Well, it didn’t quite work out as you can see. Snow and ice and SPEED provide for the perfect combination of crunched metal and calling for a wrecker. My speed was 55 – 60 in a POSTED 65 mph zone, his was 65 – 70. As we were clearing this wreck, ANOTHER tractor trailer jackknifed about 100 yards BEHIND us blocking the road. 15 miles in front of me, a rig was over the bank jackknifed. Folks, WAKE UP before you CAN’T!!!!!”
