Road crew nearly wiped out by semi in shocking close call caught on dash cam

An out of control truck driver threads the needle in a construction zone close call caught on dash cam that has to be seen to be believed.

The dash cam clip was reportedly captured on I-79 in Fairmont, West Virgina, last month and was shared by “Truckers Wall of Shame Unchained” on November 5. In the video, a flatbed truck suddenly barrels through an active construction zone, nearly taking out motorists and a construction crew.

Truckers Wall of Shame Unchained and several social media users suggest that brake failure was to blame, especially given the hilly terrain of West Virginia.

CDLLife has reached out to West Virginia State Police for additional information about the video. This article will be updated with any additional information.
