VIDEO: Pickup driver learns exactly why you shouldn’t crowd snowplows


A pickup driver learned a tough lesson on safe driving around snowplows this week.

County officials released dash cam video captured by a snowplow on Thursday, February 15, on snowy I-75 in Bloomfield Township, Michigan.

In the video, you can see the dash cammer traveling in the far right lane of the interstate while a pickup approaches in the middle lane. The pickup driver loses control and crashes into the right guardrail. The plow then strikes the side of the out-of-control pickup truck. The plow driver is able to safely pull off on the shoulder following the crash.

No injuries were reported.

“We cannot stress this enough! Drive for conditions. Slow down! Give our trucks space to work,” said the Road Commission for Oakland County.
