A motorist recently captured two tractor trailer accidents in one short video as he was traveling on I-69 near Holt, Michigan, showing the treacherous driving conditions caused by icy roads.
The video was captured by motorist Nick Schneider, on December 5 on I-69 near Holt, Michigan. Since the video was shared on Facebook on Wednesday, it has been viewed more than 3 million times.
In the video, you can see Schneider filming the aftermath of a previous semi truck crash when suddenly he he turns around and captures another semi truck losing control on video.

Multiple crashes were reported on northbound I-69 in Michigan on the morning of Wednesday, December 5, while snowy weather made the interstate slick, according to the Lansing State Journal. Local news stations report that one of the crashed truck drivers on I-69 was taken to the hospital for “evaluation.”
