VIDEO: Truck Jackknifes Hard To Avoid Slowed Traffic In Houston

An 18-wheeler heading north on Highway 59 in Houston Friday jackknifed across four lanes of traffic, barely missing cars around it, a dashcam video shows. As that big rig swerved to the left, miraculously, the congested lanes were empty, leaving space for the truck.

The truck then crunched in on itself and rolled backward, again into lanes that were once filled with cars. The video shows cars being able to move around the truck, undamaged. There were no reports of injuries.
