Every once a while, you may get tied up in a situation that seems to be a little bit of a trip and an adrenaline rush beyond what you normally go through on your average day. Sometimes, it can get your heart racing and really make you feel alive, however, when you watch a video like this, you check out an adrenaline rush that is pretty unwelcome, to say the least. Watching the situation unfold almost makes your heart beat out of your chest as you can’t help but feel for the woman here who is looking in the eyes of death and ends up being able to avoid it somehow.
This situation really looks like something straight out of a bad dream as the winter weather really didn’t treat the drivers on this highway with much respect. It’s a situation that we’ve definitely seen before but no matter how many times you see something like this, it ends up being terrifying as cars simply piled up on the highway, left to be sitting ducks and just hope that whoever was coming after them would be able to see far enough ahead to stop in time as not to create an accident. However, that simply wasn’t the case here.
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll watch as a woman spectates as a tractor-trailer is bearing down on her and before long, has to make a split second decision of whether she’s going to try and bail out of the car and get out of the way or hang tight. It might sound like an easy thing to process as it seems like a no-brainer to get out of the way but the actual act of doing it on the spot like that has to be incredibly difficult. After seeing it all happen, you’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief as our hero is able to scurry out of the way at the last possible second, slipping on the ice but still clearing herself of the incident just moments before the semi clobbers her car.
