Jeez your lucky to be venting your anger on here. Rather than your family venting about your untimely passing.
Do you mind my asking how fast you were traveling? Seemed you were going fast enough not to be overtaken by a car.

i think we were doing around 75mph .. on a 70mph zone .. one thing you dont see in this video is that there was a car in front of my buddy u see in the video .. on gopro everything looks farther than they really are .. not only did the car almost get hit by the truck .. she had to squeeze in between us and the car in front of us ..

I've always wondered why there are so many head-on collisions on straight roads with unlimited visibility. Never considered that many of them are probably suicidal idiots like that moron.

I guess its true..truckers dont have brakes..ive always wondered in movies why they just keep driving along and maybe blow there horn if someone is coming right at them like they are unable to stop..kinda like that one without the horn blowing.. not sayn the trucker did anything wrong..but i couldnt help but slow down if someone was driving at me in my lane

Wow, what a complete piece of garbage! I really hope they end up on the losing end one day driving like that and don't hurt anybody else doing it.

Unreal! Complete idiocy. I bet she was late for something important like a manicure! She has this uncanny ability to survive situations like that but she'll be the person stopped at the end of the next merge lane because merging is scary! The part that is even scarier, is that the truck would never have hit her because she would have taken out your friend to avoid that! At a closing speed in excess of 230 km/h with a 50,000 lb trailer the semi driver is just along for the ride in that situation.
