A truck driver spots a motorist in distress and tries to lend a hand, but things take a crazy turn in a matter of seconds.

The video captioned “when you try to stop to help but things go to hell in a gas truck” was shared earlier this week by TikTok user kevinmedic51.

In the clip, you can see a car badly damaged by fire smoking on the shoulder of the roadway. The dash cammer immediately tries to pull over to provide assistance, but winds up clipping a second semi truck in the right lane, sending it off the roadway and barreling toward a pedestrian.

Remarkably, kevinmedic51 said that the pedestrian was okay.

The TikTok video has been viewed more than 3 million times.

Check out the wild video below.
