VIDEO: Pickup’s blown tire sends it careening off road, then into the path of a semi truck


A truck driver’s dash cam captured a sudden and scary close call with a pickup truck.

The video was captured in Cary, North Carolina, and shared by TikTok user @chris_g98 on April 28. It has since then been viewed more than 2.2 million times.

In the video, a Baker Roofing Company pickup driver experiences a blowout on the back right tire. The pickup driver loses control and drives off the road into a grassy area, then manages to make it back to the roadway. The pickup finally comes to a stop blocking the right shoulder and the right lane, but the dash cammer is able to bring his truck to a safe stop and avoid a crash.

“Thanks to our driver’s quick reaction to his tire blowout, and your awareness and defensive driving, everyone is okay and no one was hurt. Drive safe!” Baker Roofing Company said.

Check out the video below.
