Weird how calm they stayed, and then laughed about it. Way too close even on a pc screen!

Yeah, I would have gone into cardiac arrest.

Imagine how scared the semi driver must have been. He must have some pretty good driving skills to be able to steer out of that fishtail.

Funny, I almost said I would've had a heart attack.

Yeah, it could be driver skill but I think good old fashioned luck played into this one on both sides.

Wow, The Lord was riding with them, whew. If that driver hadn't let off the brakes and floored it so the rig would straighten out of that jackknife it would have been bad.

I agree Jim. The drivers of the truck and the car both need one of those "God is my co-pilot" bumper stickers.

I sure would like to know what the two of them are saying after the truck misses them.

Did you guys read any of the responses posted under the video? One of them says something about Chuck Norris being the driver. lol.
