VIDEO: A very scary splash situation


A driver does a great job maintaining his lane in a near-blind splash situation. 

In the clip, two truckers are driving side-by-side on a narrow two-lane highway with barriers on either side during a rainstorm when the driver in the left lane pulls ahead. 

The driver pulling ahead then kicks up a deep puddle, splashing it directly onto the windshield of the filming driver. The filming trucker can see just about nothing for at least four seconds. 

“Couldn’t see the mirrors. I was blind on all sides. I gave the brakes a light touch to start slowing down and prayed I was straight and that so was he. He very easily could have hydroplaned. I got a good look at that water just before he hit it. It was deep,” wrote the video poster. 

“Still pulling chunks of seat cushion out of my butt,” the driver added.
