After getting stuck in traffic behind two semi trucks on south bound Interstate 95 in New Jersey, a man started video recording the scene while waiting for the trucks to clear out of the way. However, he had no idea he would capture his own near-death experience on video.
The terrifying moment began after the man heard a "noise from behind" him. When he turned to look, he saw another semi truck that had apparently hit a patch of black ice and was barreling towards him out of control.
The driver of the truck seemingly steered away from the man’s vehicle to avoid hitting — and potentially killing — him. The semi truck went plowing over the median and into oncoming traffic on the other side of the interstate.

The condition of the driver wasn’t immediately known, though the YouTube user who uploaded the video, MrLegolize, wrote that he checked to make sure everyone was “alright.” The video was uploaded on Monday.
“Once I turned off camera, I called in 911 and reported the accident. After that I came to the truck and the rest of the cars to verify they were alright. After arrival of NJ State Trooper and his dismissal confirming that he does not require my presence, I left the scene,” the man wrote in the video’s description.
