Trucking Vlogger J Canell talks about steer, drive, and trailer blowouts from first-hand experience in a YouTube video he posted earlier today on his channel. He describes his high-speed blowout as a learning experience, and shows us why you should never stand in front of an inflating tire.

Canell states, “Trucking accidents happen on a daily basis but here are a few tips to keep you from causing more damage.The worst feeling is when a steer tire goes out from under you and you have to train your brain to handle it in a microsecond or possible fatalities will occur.”

Don’t: Panic, Break or stop as quickly as possible because the truck will pull in the direction of the flat

Do: “Death Grip”, Counter steer and accelerate to shift weight in the opposite direction of the flat, Access your best directional option and bring to controlled stop
