The ice storm that wrecked havoc on the Northeast on Sunday was awful, creating treacherous conditions on some of the country’s busiest highways. It’s being blamed for deaths and car accidents all up and down the East Coast. One driver on the New Jersey Turnpike became stopped when a truck lost control and blocked the highway. But then chaos unfolded when a double-semi behind the driver lost control on black ice, swerving to miss the car in the median and going into the opposite lane. The truck completely jackknifes, possibly hitting a couple more cars by the looks of the wreckage after the driver gets his composure together.

The video is terrifying. I’m not sure recording was the smartest idea here, but then again, I’m not sure what else he could do while stopped from the accident infront of him.
