A trucker’s dash cam captured his impressive maneuver after encountering an unexpected slow down on the roadway.
In the clip, the truck is seen traveling on the freeway, behind a blue van that suddenly brakes for slowed traffic.
The trucker instantly reacts when he realizes he wouldn’t be able to stop in time — and swerves off the roadway, onto the highway shoulder, in order to avoid a collision with the van.
After hitting the shoulder, the driver makes another swift movement and narrowly avoids striking a lamp pole off the side of the road.
The truck then comes to a stop on the right shoulder of the highway. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the incident.
