VIDEO: Cable barrier keeps jackknifed semi from skidding into oncoming traffic


Caught on Minnesota Department of Transportation traffic cameras this week — a semi truck driver suddenly loses control on an icy roadway.

The video was captured on January 14, 2020, in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

In the clip, you can see that the truck suddenly jackknifes during winter weather conditions, sliding off the road and into the median. The truck could have easily ended up in the oncoming lanes of traffic, but it was arrested by cable barriers in the median.

No injuries were reported.
