Cable barrier saves truckers from catastrophic head-on collision

Published:

A semi truck driver has shared dash cam video of a frightening near miss with another out of control tractor trailer.

The dash cam video was captured on I-40 about 60 miles east of Little Rock, Arkansas, on February 19.

In the video, you can see the dash cammer traveling in the left lane of the interstate when a truck heading the opposite direction loses control, barrels through the median, and seems just moments from entering oncoming traffic.

At the last moment, the oncoming truck driver hits a cable barrier in the median, preventing it from crashing into the dash cammer and other vehicles.

You can view the dash cam clip below.
