This is a short video from Indiana of a semi truck that was forced off the interstate by a merging car (LEARN HOW TO F***ING DRIVE) and had no other choice but to CATCH SOME SERIOUS AIR AND EXPLODE. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured or I probably wouldn't be posting this.
The driver told Trooper Noah he swerved to avoid the other vehicle and ran off the south side of the interstate. The semi was then driven up a hill and through a guardrail. Young continued eastbound and ramped the U.S. 421 interchange before striking another guardrail, tearing off the truck's fuel tanks and causing its fuel to ignite.
The driver reportedly suffered minor facial and head injuries in the crash. His seven-year-old son, who was a passenger in the vehicle, suffered only scratches.
See? This is why I'm so terrified to drive. Driving is fun when you're the only person on the road, but when you add OTHER drivers, it starts to suck and get DANGEROUS. The guy who lives across the street from me always backs out of his driveway and across four lanes of traffic so he doesn't have to make a U-turn. I can seriously tell whenever he leaves the house just by all the honking and tires squealing.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Side Effect, who agrees I need to add a semi-truck jump and explosion to my next annual neighborhood stunt spectacular.
