This is what happens when you pass a tractor trailer unit without knowing what's in front of the truck. The irresponsible driver should have known that the truck was slowing down for a reason. Very disturbing!

There seem to be less and less good drivers out there, and it is like nobody bothers to drive by the book anymore which increases the number of car accidents. This video teaches a great lesson on “how not to pass a semi”!

A semi-trailer truck, more commonly called a "semi" is the combination of a tractor unit and one or more semi-trailers to carry freight.

This semi was driving on a straight motorway and a red car can be seen driving in front of it. After a few moments, the semi is obviously slowing down because the can in front gives a signal for a left turn.

That is when we can hear the truck driver shout “Oh my Gosh” and then he starts honking. Next thing, everything happens so fast. We see the red car make a left turn when another car is passing the semi and speeding by, so it directly crushes into the turning car.

Every driver is responsible for staying safe on the road. It is very important to keep a distance. Trucks need a lot more room to stop than passenger cars need. This means, whether you’re driving in front of or behind a truck, be sure you’re leaving plenty of room in between vehicles.

Unfortunately, this driver didn’t remember this rule, and walked into a death trap. Let’s hope that there are no victims in this horrible car accident!

      I agree the driver of the second car is an idiot. My question in what moron okayed a passing zone in an intersection?

        That's not the trucker's responsibility! You shouldn't be passing someone unless you are 100% certain you can do so safely. The car behind was driving WAY too fast, they are 100% at fault. As for the mention that they hope there's no victims. Sorry but there are victims, the people in the car that got hit and the truck driver for having to witness this and be part of it.

            Mika is right. That is not the truckers responsibility. That isn't even taught in drivers ed. Don't blame the trucker for not doing something that YOU think he should! Brake lights are all that second driver needed. Just because he's an idiot doesn't make the trucker at fault. I was a professional truck driver and I was NEVER told to turn my signal on because the person in front of me had theirs on.

            The truck driver is under no responsibility to turn on his blinker, case closed.

            There have been wrecks caused by a following vehicle giving a turn signal for the vehicle they were following, and hitting somebody because that third driver pulled out in front of a vehicle they thought was turning, but didn't. For instance, you are waiting to cross an intersection. You see two approaching vehicles signaling a right turn, which means you will not cross their path-they are turning onto the road your are on. So, you pull out and the second vehicle does not turn, but goes straight and hits you broadside. Giving a turn signal when you aren't turning is a bad idea.

            After being behind the wheel of 18 wheelers for 40 years and seeing it all, even IF the driver had realized the idiot behind him WAS going to pass, if he had at they time they were in a no passing zone, so why should he? There was only need after it was too late and the idiot passing was already alongside the rig! Just face it! You like to try to blame the one driver that had nothing to do with the horrendous actions of the idiot that was speeding through an intersection, PASSING in an intersection, all while not returning to the proper lane in time! More than likely due to alcohol impaired driving!

      Wait, is this idiot seriously saying the truck driver is at fault.... 😂😂😂 So many dumb people in this world. I've driven over 650,000 miles in my life, and I've never once seen someone signal for someone else. Hazards in a dangerous situation, sure. But just putting a turn signal on when someone else is turning in front of you.... no.... that's just retarded. All you're doing is falsely advertising that you're gonna turn to. IF, and it's a big ass IF, but IF the trucker saw it coming (which you can clearly see and hear he didn't notice until it was too late), but IF he saw it coming, hazards would be the appropriate course of action there. Truckers fault...smdh. get a clue.

      No ones fault. That intersection should have been marked as a no passing zone.

        As the trucker had a dashboard camera rolling when those watched the footage numerous times when the cause of the collision fell on the driver of the blue car when they learnt the hard way the local jurisdiction had put "no passing" zones there for a reason as they learnt another lesson to check if traffic is clear on a double laned highway to get around slow moving traffic in places where passing is allowed indicated by a broken line as the trucker said some expletives when the blue car went around the semi before plowing into the red car signaling to make a left turn at the intersection.

        No one's fault? It's clearly the fault of the car that tried to pass the truck.

      that was really stupid of the state to put a passing lane by intersection when it should of been a double solid line for no passing for saftey. The truck driver tries to warn but i hope all are ok

        Why is there a passing zone at an intersection, they need to sue the municipal that was responsible for this. But the passing car was going way too fast he sould have seen the intersection coming and slowed down for it at the very least

      So many are blaming the black car for passing in a no passing zone or intersection. First off all, the road was marked with a BROKEN yellow line. That is NOT a no passing zone. It is merely a separator. Secondly, I didn't see a sign indicating there was an upcoming intersection. How the hell was the driver of the black car supposed to know?? For all he/she knew, it was a perfectly safe passing area. How on earth was the driver of the passing car supposed to know what was in front of the truck? Maybe deploy a camera drone to fly in front of the truck? That's what road signs and lane markings are for, and there weren't any. This is clearly the fault of whatever government agency that has jurisdiction over that road, and I would love to be the attorney for the plaintiffs against that government agency.
