In this dash cam video, a truck driver is forced to think fast when traffic ahead comes to a quick standstill.

The dash cam clip was shared by Reddit user u/Half-White-Mexican on January 8, 2023.

In the video, several vehicles come to a stop in the roadway for traffic. A semi truck driver isn’t able to stop in time to avoid a crash, but instead aims the semi for a highway barrier to allow it to take most of the impact — minimizing damage to the stopped cars.
