Russian 18-Wheeler Slides Trailer Around Corner - Narrowly Misses Oncoming Car

Driving an eighteen-wheeler is not an easy job, and it requires a lot of experience and concentration to do right, especially when the roads are not bone-dry. The trailer, which pivots around, has its own mass and inertia, and it can easily ‘step out’, if the driver is not careful.
This Russian driver gets reminded of this the hard way, yet as luck would have it, he manages to get things in line, just before another car passes, going the other way. A few meters separated this video from becoming an accident video, and it in the end it was just a lesson for the driver, to pay more attention to the road conditions.

The reaction of the people in the car behind says it all, and while we don’t know what they are saying, we don’t have to.
