Video: Crazy Truck Passing On Two Lane Highway

This is a video of a crazy truck driver passing me on a two lane road and running the oncoming traffic off the road.

You only need to watch the first 40 seconds of the video. I don't know how to edit videos yet, this was my first upload. I'm south bound US-95 about an hour north of Las Vegas Nevada. Two cars had to go into the shoulder to avoid a head on collision. My speed was 62 mph in a 70 mph speed zone but thats no excuse to risk lives. Had he waited a couple of minutes he could have passed safely.

The company is Houser Transport if you are interested in contacting them to make them aware of the video.

You really should contact that company (maybe DOT too) and give them a link to the video with day, time, and location of the incident.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

I went to Houser Transport website and sent a email to customer care, I gave them the YouTube link and explained best I could where and when it happened. We'll see if I get a response from them. I can't make out a tractor or trailer number, I'm sure that would help.

Anchorman has a good point. Better to report him to his company safety than the other suggested way. Although the satisfaction would be immediate the long term affects would not be so good.

I think it's a miracle that truck didn't cause all of you to end up in a wreck. Glad you made it through ok. It looked like multiple lives could have been lost in my opinion.

That person does not belong behind the wheel of any vehicle let alone a rig. What a pos!

Folks, this is why every driver needs a dash cam! We are driving deadly machines and we need a set of eyes that don't lie. You can't say safety is your #1 priority and you don't even have a dash cam. You can get one as low as 50$ if you look hard enough. Don't be cheap, get a dash cam.

And Chris, great job on moving to the shoulder. I'm going to analyze that video and see if I can make out a trailer number.
