Motorists walk away from obliterated pickup after hitting brakes in front of semi truck


Four people walked away with only minor injuries after a serious wreck with a semi truck decimated their pickup on Tuesday morning. 

The accident happened on August 17th in Wadsworth, Illinois. 

According to the Lake & McHenry County Scanner, the pickup was traveling along Interstate 94 near Wadsworth Road when it slowed down to make a lane change. The semi truck behind it was unable to stop and crashed into the pickup, sending both vehicles smashing into the concrete barrier wall. 

The wreck left the pickup truck almost unrecognizable, but somehow all four passengers inside of the truck were able to walk away with only minor injuries.  

The truck driver was not hurt in the incident. 

It is still unclear whether any citations have been issued as a result of the wreck.
