When it Rains - Slow down and pay extra attention

This was scary, as I entered the intersection I heard something to my left and when I looked I saw this white truck barreling towards the intersection. I feel bad for the people he hit, but I am glad they were there to stop him from plowing over me.

I wonder if he was looking at his phone.....

That's gotta give you some pucker, for sure. Thanks for the video!

I admit I despise going through high-speed 4 lane intersections unless there's already cars stopped at the red to provide a crash barrier. Distracted yahoos like Mr. White Ford F150 Man there can kill you a dozen ways, but getting T-boned at speed is my personal phobia.

I'm with everyone else, glad you weren't the victim here. It continues to amaze me how many distracted drivers there are on the road.
