I bet the driver saw the car thru the little window on the bottom of the door and just swerved as a natural reaction. Or the car got under the front wheel and the tractor bounced up. A billion to 1 shot it happened the way it did..........wow.

If you look closely at the start of the video, you will see the car impact the Passenger side front tire, this jerked the steering wheel out of the drivers hands (Driver stated this in a Company Memo sent out to all Pepsi Employees, me included) and drove the truck into the center divider, the rest is inertia.

I bet that wouldn't have happened to a Coke driver.

Just kidding, as I have a huge respect for semi drivers now that I have a single axle truck that I use to move equipment. I fully believe that an impact on the steer tire would send a truck into the opposite direction just like that. Good thing it was all caught on camera, as truck drivers are put through the ringer in any accident here in Michigan anyway.

Wow what kind of idiot swerves towards a semi, that nissan driver should have his license taken away permanently. If you can't see a semi beside your window you should be allowed to drive. Glad no one got hurt from what appears what extremely poor drivers actions.
