Driver leaps to safety before 19-wheeler flips off pass

Pasadena, TX – On August 18, a driver of a tractor-trailer had to make a split-second decision to avoid being harmed as it flipped over, following a collision with another semi-truck. The driver was caught on a dash cam as he left his semi on Texas Highway 225 on Red Bluff Road.

The highway conditions were a bit more wet and slippery for the usual Texas roads. The Trucker reported that both vehicles involved in the incident hydroplaned, which is what led them to lose control.

This video shows the driver being thrown out of the semi, whether the semi threw him out or he intentionally jumped out is not yet known.
