VIDEO: Car Hits Pepsi Truck, Causes Catastrophic Wreck

In this Jalopnik exclusive video — the driver of a Pepsi semi-truck is cut off by an out-of-control Nissan Sentra, overturned and then thrown across the median into oncoming traffic Wednesday morning in Dallas.

We received this video from the North Texas Tollway Authority of an insane crash occurring on the northbound lanes of the Dallas North Tollway just after 10:00 am on Wednesday. In the video it appears as if the Nissan Sentra doesn't make the turn and hits the truck, bounces off and then over-corrects, causing the Sentra to then reconnect with the semi, sending both into the inbound lanes.

When the truck crosses over a Porsche Cayenne amazingly manages to swerve out of the way and avoid being rushed. Only six vehicles were involved and just two people were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Great reaction and driving on the part of the little silver crossover thing. The semi just fell into his lane and he managed to not hit anything or the wall.... and he kept on driving, lol. It's funny how nobody knows what to do when stuff like this happens. They don't know if they should stop, go, or what. Hell, I don't even know what I would do in that situation.

Goes to show that, ugly though they may be, those Cayennes can really handle. Amazing how it it dodges that semi and managed not to hit the wall.

WTF is the deal with that Sentra?

Unless there is something I am missing (LF tire blowout???) He/She should have their license suspended for about a decade. Truly a miracle that no one was crushed like an ant under a work boot.

I swear, if that semi hadn't hit that light post, the little, dark car would have met its match. Seems like it managed to scrape underneath and crap out the backside before hitting the meridian.

Utterly confusing how people end up doing a quick rubber-neck and carry on driving. How annoying.
