A driver caught this dash cam footage of a semi truck crashing head first into a tree earlier this week.

The incident occurred on December 28th, and was filmed by YouTuber Mark S., who wrote this in the description.

My dash camera caught this wreck live. The engine was thrown clear of the truck. The cab on the inside was crushed to about 3 feet wide, if there was a passenger it would have likely been certain death. The drive had a bad leg injury, and that seem to be the extent.

The driver who recorded the incident said police indicated the truck driver dozed off while driving. He was using electronic logs.

Thankfully, he made it out a live.
