Series of swerves sends wrong-way pickup smashing into semi truck


A pickup truck’s erratic driving led to a serious head-on collision with a semi truck in Indiana on Tuesday morning. 

The accident happened on Tuesday, October 26th near Charlestown, Indiana. 

According to WLKY News, the pickup truck was traveling on the wrong side of Paul Garrett Road by the river Ridge Industrial Park, so an oncoming semi truck moved into the center lane to avoid it. All of a sudden, the pickup swerved back towards the proper lane, colliding with the semi truck in the center turn lane as a result. 

The driver of the pickup had to be pulled from his vehicle by first responders. He was then transported to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported. 

The accident is still under investigation.
