Troopers Still Investigating What Caused SUV To Lose Control

The crash happened on northbound I-5.

As you watch the video, you can see the driver of an SUV leave his or her lane and crash head on with a jersey barrier. This collision sent the SUV spinning wildly across two lanes of traffic — and directly into the path of the dash cammer’s tanker truck.

The truck driver was unable to avoid the sudden crash.

The SUV driver suffered only minor injuries. A service dog inside the SUV died in the crash. The truck driver was not hurt.

The tanker was empty when the crash occurred.

Trooper Rick Johnson with WSP says that the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
