Video: Semi trucks and ice don’t play nice

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Transportation, Videos

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.

Amish driver gone wild in New York country road

Amish Buggy Beer Run

Most of us can remember the day that we were given freedom by our parents. The world was in our hands and the possibilities were endless, right? Now, we all know the Amish for shunning the use of mass electricity, TVs, and other everyday technologies we’ve come to love, but for a brief time in an Amish person’s life, they’re given the freedom to experience life as we know it.

Now you’re probably thinking, "What's the worst that can happen when Amish are on the loose?" Well, lets just say it can bring a party to a crashing end.

Last Sunday, in Sherman, NY, police responded to an alleged “buggy party.” On route to responding to the call, a buggy abruptly switched lanes and hit the patrol car, then flipped, injuring one of the four passengers. Furthermore, police reported the buggy was filled with beer. To complicate the matter more, the driver, 20 years old, was the host of the party.

When police finally arrived, they observed buggies fleeing the scene. Oh, how we wish we could see this on next installment of TruTv’s World’s Dumbest Drivers.
