This is amazing!
A FedEx truck driver with a long combination vehicle got caught in the snowy California mountains.
Going downhill, he kept his rig from jackknifing for two solid minutes! The video has gone viral.
At the end, someone on the police radio said, ‘I cannot believe that worked.’
“Hitting a patch of ice and skidding off the road can cause any of us to have a slight panic attack. Now imagine being behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler pulling not one, but two trailers, and jackknifing at a steep incline.
Would you be able to keep your cool?
A driver of a FedEx truck in California handled the situation like a boss and it was caught on camera.
The truck jackknifed at the high point of the snowy mountain pass on Interstate 80 near Floriston, close to the Nevada border, on Thursday morning.’When the driver had lost it at the top of the hill, he had broke the air lines to his rear trailer,’ posted California Highway Patrol -Truckee on Facebook. ‘This caused the brakes on the rear trailer to lock up.'”
This is worth sharing!
