Woman Has Fractions Of A Second To Bail Before Semi Crushes Her
March 9th, 2018
You would think the gut reaction would be easy - jump out of the way of a semi barreling at you. But we have to imagine you might freeze up from fear or think you have a better chance being protected in your car when you're in a situation like this.
This lady gets major points for being alert in this situation because the ending could have easily been very different. In what appears to be a snowy traffic jam/pileup there's cars and trucks completely at a standstill on the roadway. Her sedan is already wrecked in the semi in front of her when a second 18-wheeler comes rolling in behind her. And that's when she has to make the decision: get out or stay in the car.
She makes the split-second decision to roll out onto the ground, almost being clipped by the door of her car in the process. The truck crushes her car and flips it around almost 180º before coming to a stop. And while she probably would've been fine staying in the driver's seat, it's one of those things you just don't know.
Talk about an adrenaline rush! Be careful out there on the roads, especially in inclement weather!
