Updated Feb 4, 2019

A trucker’s dashcam captured what turned out to be a three-vehicle collision on Interstate 75 in Ohio last November. The Ohio Highway Patrol gave this description: “A 2006 Dodge pickup, driven by Albert Morales, 43, of Columbus Grove, (Ohio) was northbound on Interstate 75 when he lost control, struck a guardrail, and ricocheted back into traffic where he struck a 2017 Freightliner semi, driven by Russell Hardesty, 75, of Wapakoneta (Ohio). The Freightliner jackknifed and pushed the Dodge pickup into a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria, owned by John Chapman, of Hamilton, Ohio.” Police said Morales was taken to the hospital while Chapman and Hardesty were treated on scene for minor injuries.
