Scary Moments As Trucker Suffering “Medical Emergency” Narrowly Avoids Motorists
Shakopee, Minnesota – The fear of experiencing a medical emergency behind-the-wheel of a big rig is shared by many truck drivers.
It happened to one trucker on Monday morning in Minnesota and it was all caught on video.
Minnesota DOT (MnDOT) traffic cameras captured the tense moments along the southbound lanes of Highway 169 in Shakopee.
The big rig can be seen weaving and swerving from lane to lane narrowly avoiding motorists.
This went on over a few mile stretch until the truck eventually made it to the right shoulder of 169 near the County Road 83 exit.
After stopping for a short time, authorities said the semi slowly rolled out into traffic again.

The driver was treated on the scene by emergency medical responders.
Thankfully, officials said the driver is okay and no one on the roadway was injured.
