Video of Tanker Crashing Into Police Car

In this video you will see an officer giving a motorist a ticket. From the police car cam you see a gasoline tanker truck coming towards the scene in the other lane. The driver loses control of the semi as it jackknifes and falls onto it's side and slides into the police car and the car the officer is ticketing. Fear not because everyone was able to get out of the way, and except for a few cuts and bruises the driver of the truck was fine also.

This is short but very eyeopening when you consider how quickly ones life can end. Also, considering the truck is a gasoline tanker, everyone should be thanking God for blessing them with a continued life that could have been much worse if the truck had exploded

Glad nobody was seriously injured.
From all evidence seen, we will be told it was President Bush's fault.

Video Ping!

It seems that most of my pings for the foreseeable future will be video pings. They are easy to set up with minimum time at the keyboard. In this video you will see a gasoline tanker crash into a police car. The video is from a police cam on the dash......

Accidents happen... BUT. I don’t have a lot of sympathy when “professional drivers” lose it like that.

While I don’t have any real evidence, my own neophyte opinion is that the truck was traveling too fast for the conditions, and made a series of additional errors in judgment that resulted in what could have been a fatal accident for several people.

I think that is a truck driver that needs an extended “relief from duty”. He should be thanking God every moment of every day that no-one was killed!

If you are correct in your assessment, then every person who is on the same road as he is should be thanking God every moment of every day that they are not killed!

Amazing what dash cams capture. I like this recent one from Ohio: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ6CPIM1ZCsM

Thanks be to God that everyone survived the hair-raising experience.

Cool that the wind-screen scrapers were still working after the police cruiser got slapped over.

You have a point! If everyone drove electric cars, no one would be able to speed, therefor, there would not have been a traffic stop. And if no one were using that EVIL oil, there would not have been a tanker to jackknife! OMG, I just saw something from a liberal point of view, I need a shot.

Here is another video. This was subject of a thread a week or two ago.

The driver does survive, and I would say only because of the hand of God.

I didn't see any placards on the trailer, so it shouldn't have been flammable cargo and too filthy for a milk truck.

Looked like the driver may have been speeding and hit the brakes when he saw the traffic cop on the side.

Do you know him personally?

or are you going of the fact that you know the kids identity only and he must be because of the way he crashed going 100mph while passing a cop?

I hadn't seen the extra footage before, the two civilians and the cop are not in a big hurry, just taking their time getting to the ejected idiot figuring he's DOA.

He survived the crash and almost gets run over after he tumbles across the lanes onto the shoulder.

The most important question, in the mind of the police chief, is ‘did the officer finish writing the ticket?’

Glad that everyone got through this unscathed.

Life does tend to get less than good when a gas truck explodes on you...

Considering the red ink most jurisdictions are in, it does make you wonder if the cop remembered to give the guy who's car is now wiped our a ticket.

After all, revenue collecting must go on. We cannot allow a minor technicality like sudden destruction of vehicle to get in the way of tax collection. What will the government do with out their just due penalty for the man's malfeasance?
