VIDEO: Could NOT Have Been A Closer Call


We’ve seen some close calls before, but this four wheeler’s brush with an oncoming 18 wheeler might just take the cake.

Trucker: “This Is How Close A Person Came To Losing Their Life”

From dash cammer Joe Strauss:

This is how close a person came to losing their life Tuesday afternoon on SR281 and Liberty Hi Rd.
This person did not stop or even slow down, they literally came inches from the front bumper of my 80,000 truck at 55mph.
I saw them and started to slow, you can tell by the video a few seconds either way and the outcome could have been terrible.
This is why when I hear people complaining about increased law enforcment patrol in our area I for one am happy.
It does not matter if it is my fault or not, If this driver would have died, or possibly me, I (or my family) have to live with the outcome. This is the exact reason I spent a lot of money on a dash cam.
As a Firefighter I have removed bodies from accidents like this could have been, and it still is in my mind years later. Your actions or lack of…. effect so many lives.
Please pay attention people !!!!
