VIDEO: Minivan driver pulls a U-turn on one of Portland’s busiest bridges


A trucker crossing the already daunting Ross Island Bridge in Portland, Oregon, catches a minivan driver making a painfully slow — and incredibly dangerous — U-turn on his dash cam.

The incident was captured on Thursday, May 18. Truck driver and dash cammer Aleks Shevchuk, 31, was hauling a load of dog food across the bridge when he had no choice but to slam on his brakes, sound his horn, and hope for the best as the minivan driver decided to throw caution to the wind and to attempt the ill-advised U-turn right in front of him.

Though the move was dangerous and brought all lanes of traffic on the bridge to a halt, Shevchuk remarked told The Oregonian that “I see these kinds of situations a lot.”
