We’re not sure why a backhoe was traveling in the middle of the freeway, and it was a good thing the driver decided to exit—except he did so from the middle lane. Truly amazing there was not a pileup.
Even more amazing, however, was the maneuver by the tractor-trailer—or, rather, that it successfully twisted through traffic without crashing or rolling over.
The truck then comes to a stop in its lane: Was the driver offering a prayer of thanks? Ready to quit on the spot? Hoping to find someone with a dash cam to prove the story of his narrow escape that he’s going to tell at the truck stop later?
