VIDEO: Car driver pulls off shoulder, turns into the path of big rig without ‘any fair warning’


A truck driver’s dash cam captured a serious collision with a car that pulled away from the shoulder and drove straight in front of the dash cammer’s semi truck.

The crash occurred around 4 p.m. on January 9 on Highway 403 in Burlington, Ontario.

According to OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt, “The driver of a black passenger vehicle was on the shoulder, traveling relatively slowly, and turned in front of a transport truck as it was exiting to Fairview Street.”

“The entire crash was captured on dashcam, and it does appear that the driver of the car turned right in front of the transport truck without giving them any fair warning,” Schmidt said.

The 52 year old motorist required extrication from her vehicle and suffered serious injuries in the crash.

OPP shared a video showing the aftermath of the collision. In the video, Schmidt asks drivers to be aware of their surroundings.
