Video: Semi trucks and ice don’t play nice
The band Underoath once said, “It’s dangerous business walking out your front door.” It appears that statement definitely rings true if you happen to drive a semi truck with any regularity. Any semi driver will tell you that the job has its perks, but it also comes at a high cost of danger. At any level, driving a semi is risky business, but adding snow to the mix just takes it to the next level.
Don’t believe us? Check out the dramatic video above, caught in Norway, as a semi and a tow truck go rolling off an icy overpass. Yeah, like we said, it’s risky business.
From what we hear the driver is in stable condition, only suffering a few broken bones.
