RolandTGunner: Holy Cow!  What's the story behind that?!


It looks like she drove right underneath the truck as it was heading through an intersection.  But it could have also merged into her lane and turned the car.

Not saying this is what happened, but just general life advice.  Don't pass trucks on the right.  They have a huge blind spot there.

As for the waiving to the other driver.  That was actually really smart.  Now he knows she's alive and it looked like he/she was pulling up to signal the truck driver who probably just thought he blew a tire if he felt anything at all.

/all speculation.

I used to work for a trucking safety org. All drivers should be required to view the "No Zone" videos that show all the blind spots on tractor-trailers.  If you can't see the driver in the mirror or window, they can't see you.

The truck driver was obviously not adequately checking his/her mirrors because the tire smoke alone should have indicated a problem, let alone half of a car sticking out the right side of the trailer.

I can't imagine how disturbingly close to the driver's face the trailer came.

[YouTube video: Suicidal Tendencies Asleep At The Wheel video]


An SUV weighs 3,500 lbs or so. A big rig that's empty weighs 35,000. Loaded it's closer to 80,000.

A diesel engine that can haul that kind of tonnage probably doesn't give much indication a little extra weight is in there.

That's being generous. The closest I've been to driving a real truck is a little pickup sized dump. Maybe they're very sensitive and these drivers are just zombied out on caffine and long haul exhaustion

We watch a ton of dash cam videos when we're bored...the number of times I've seen either this, or a car being dragged similarly on the FRONT of the semi without the driver noticing is kinda concerning to be honest. And since they deal with psychotics on the road a lot, they don't always know how to react when some rando is suddenly honking and waving at them to stop...

The car could easily be below the field of view of the offside mirror, or the driver could easily be on the phone.

Ooh!, another possibility, she could have blown her front drivers side tire and that turned her under the truck!  Those are clearly interstate highway signs so the intersection idea is out... unless it's a state highway merging into an interstate highway.

Also, forgot to add, don't linger in a truck's blind spot for too long.  When they change lanes they usually monitor their rearview mirror for a little bit to see if any cars are coming or going.  If you're to the right of a truck that turns it's blinkers on slow down immediately and let it in, there's a good chance the driver doesn't know you're there.

I blame the fact there was no clearance sign like they have on low bridges; which of course are ignored just as often.

How would it turn the car nose in?  Somebody ran a traffic control.

Could have happened before the truck got on the freeway.  She had to have hit pretty hard to be stuck under there, I have a hard time picturing any mishap on the freeway doing that.

If she drifted out of her lane and got the nose of her car under the trailer it would turn her sideways.

Identifying the blind spots of a tractor trailer was one of the questions on all my written driver's tests... I have a class E/L and M license.

She is why they call that metal bar on the back of the trailer a Mansfield bar.
Not good with HTML but it looks like a long upside down pi symbol without the squiggly top.  Supposedly to prevent a car from going under the trailer.  Mariska and her little bro were in the backseat asleep.

Perhaps the car had previous damage, maybe they were merging into the same lane at the same time?

I can't imagine the trucker making it all the way up the ramp and into the 2nd to left lane with the car stuck under there.

"I'm not going to try to pass that up"  The car could have come dislodged at any time.  Once you realize there's another person's life at stake a little bit of risk to yourself is warranted.  It looks like the pickup that passed the semi on the left also got his attention and it looks like the car the video was shot from was trying to get the truck to stay in it's lane.  Turning would have made it more likely to dislodge the car.
