Watch This Truck Hit Black Ice, Jackknife, Then Jump The Highway Barrier
Recent cold weather has seen a dramatic increase in crashes - particularly on American highways - where black ice and fog claim their victims. This dramatic footage shows a huge truck jackknife, then jump the barrier
The crash happened on Sunday (18th January) on the I-95 in New Jersey. As you can see, the driver of the vehicle from which the video is being shot, had an extremely lucky escape from certain death - almost as a close a call as the guy whose pickup truck was sandwiched by two trucks - while he was a sitting duck following an earlier crash between two tractor-trailers.
As the truck and its two trailers slide across the highway, the pendulum motion forces the truck into and over the central metal barrier. According to reports, there were no fatalities.
