A blatant attempt at insurance fraud by a motorist was caught on dash cam by a trucker in Tennessee recently.

The video was posted to Youtube by user Brenda Jackson late last week and has since gained almost 25,000 views.

“Wreck. Interstate 40 West Bound Tennessee. Mile Marker 180” she describes.

The video has left many viewers shocked at the obvious intent of the brake check and sympathetic towards the trucker.

“Insurance fraud at its finest…” wrote one viewer.

“I’m surprised the impact didn’t send that pos swerving and rolling over (like it deserved),” commented another.
