Dash Cam of the Week: Rock and Roll

Dec. 16, 2016
The staff here at Dash Cam of Week couldn’t make any sense out of what the red car (A Camaro? Hard to tell by time it bounces off a couple of retaining walls) was doing, but we have a pretty good idea of what the tractor-trailer driver was thinking: “Man, I’m the luckiest guy in the world.”

The staff here at Dash Cam of Week couldn’t make any sense out of what the red car (A Camaro? Hard to tell by time it bounces off a couple of retaining walls) was doing, but we have a pretty good idea of what the tractor-trailer driver was thinking: “Man, I’m the luckiest guy in the world.”

And that’s followed quickly by, “The guys at the shop are never going to believe this.”

But since a trailing vehicle had a camera, we can all look on with wonderment that the rig rocked but it didn’t roll. (It’s also good to see people rushing to the aid of a fellow motorist.) Things can get random out there, driver, so buckle up. And carry on.
