Trucker's last second save prevents possibly catastrophic pileup

In this dash cam footage, a truck driver makes a split-second decision to avoid what could have been a major pileup crash.

The dash cam clip was shared by YouTube user Amir Khan on April 3.

In the video, you can see that the truck driver comes upon suddenly slowed traffic and has to make a quick decision. Because he is unable to stop his truck in time, he swerves into the median and hangs on for a bumpy ride through the grass.

Fortunately, the last-second maneuver prevented what would likely have been a major pileup crash and no one was seriously hurt.

You can take a look at the wild save below.
