WATCH: Pickup pulling trailer has a death wish 


A pickup hauling a trailer appears to have a death wish in this dash cam clip. 

In the video, a pickup hauling a trailer is parked on the right shoulder of a highway when it suddenly pulls out in front of the filming rig. The move forces the trucker to make a quick lane change over a solid white line to avoid smashing into the back of the pickup. 

“He’s lucky the left lane cleared!” wrote the video poster. 

“Happened to me last year,” commented one viewer. “Stopped on the left side shoulder, and immediately moved into the left lane. I ended up blowing the lady’s minivans doors off on the shoulder.”

“People just don’t understand how often this happens and how much skill it takes to manage,” added another.
