VIDEO: Trucking company says their driver prevented a ‘devastating accident’


An Iowa trucking company shared dash cam video to show how one of their drivers was able to use defensive driving skills to avoid a potentially catastrophic accident.

The dash cam video featuring a trucker’s encounter with a wrong-way motorist was shared this week by Simon’s Trucking.

The video was captured on March 17 between Jesup and Fairbank, Iowa. The dash cammer says that he was hauling a loaded tanker to a location in Fredericksburg when the close call occurred.

“We do not know the circumstances around what truly happened here, it could have been anything from fatigue or simply being distracted. What we do know is that our driver was aware of his surroundings and reacted in such a way that he was able to prevent a devastating accident from happening and for that we are very grateful!” Simon’s Trucking said.
