DASH CAM: 18-Year-Old Motorist Doesn’t Respect Semi Then Goes For A “Spin”
Muskogee Turnpike, Oklahoma – A just released dash cam video of an 18-year-old motorist deciding not to yield to a bobtail semi-truck is setting the internet ablaze.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) posted the dash cam video to their Facebook page on Monday after the father of the young woman shared it in hopes it would be beneficial for other motorists to learn the dangers of not respecting big rigs.
It happened last Friday night along the Muskogee Turnpike, a state toll highway that connects Tulsa and Interstate 40.
In the post, OHP wrote that the young motorist “failed to yield to a semi while merging onto the highway, hit it and went spinning out of control.”
As she spins out of control, her vehicle also collides with a red sedan, before coming to rest sideways on the roadway.
Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.
Hopefully, the young motorist learned a valuable lesson, and one that can benefit the many hundreds of thousands, and maybe millions, who see it.
At the time of this publishing the video has well over 600,000 views and has been shared close to 10,000 times on Facebook.
Bravo to the father because if it can save one life it is well worth it.
