Video of Truck Crashing on Louisiana Interstate Goes Viral as Viewers Debate Who is at Fault
Video of a truck crashing into a guardrail on a Louisiana highway earlier this year has resurfaced along with a debate on who was in the wrong.
The video went viral earlier this year after it was posted in the IdiotsInCars subreddit by Reddit user Halfriican. The clip opens up as a pickup truck in the left lane of the highway rolls up quickly on a black car before abruptly shifting over to the right lane in front of the vehicle being driven by the person recording.
Then, just as it seems like the pickup truck is going to continue shifting right to the shoulder in order to pass the silver SUV in the right lane, it is quickly realized that the driver of the pickup truck had no idea a guardrail was waiting in its path.
By the time the truck realizes a guardrail is occupying the shoulder, it's way too late as the pickup makes a last-second attempt to re-enter the highway; but by that time, the truck was already wedged between the SUV and the guardrail leading to an inevitable crash.
It didn't take long for the internet sleuths to figure out that this happened in Louisiana—more specifically, in Lake Charles on the I-210 Loop at Lake Street.
An overwhelming majority of people responded to the video saying that the impatient driver of the pickup truck got instant karma, but there were actually some folks who blamed the black car for traveling too slowly in the left lane.
Some felt like multiple people were at fault here—including the person who filmed the incident.
Based on the video, who are you placing the blame on? Sound off in the comments and be safe out there.
