Driving your car to a destination does not always go as planned. Flat tires, road debris, vehicle failure or worse are all possibilities when traveling. These situations are especially dangerous if you are driving on the highway. If something unexpected happens, you should try to get to the shoulder of the highway as quickly as possible to ensure everyone’s safety. Unfortunately, there may be times when this is not possible.
Traffic cam video recently emerged from the Minnesota Department of Transportation showing an accident that was caused by someone who did not get their vehicle to the shoulder in time. Thankfully, the driver was able to get to safety with no injuries reported. The video was captured on I-35 near Forest Lake, on the fringe of the Twin Cities. The driver of a red pickup had hit a deer and his vehicle was disabled. After the crash, both the semi and pickup cleared the roadway, with the latter in flames on an off-ramp.
