sorry to say but f*ckin noob ass drivers. Welcome to Canada... we see those kind of roads 5-6 months of the year. There is no reason that evo driver should have been driving that fast in the first place.
Oh and lol... only low 20's (f) for temperature.... we have been at the low 20's (f) for a few months now and that feels warm. When it hits minus 20f (-28c) for days on end give me a call.

But i will give him props... he did avoid that big mess!

Here is a pic right now of a camera on the highway near my town right now... and it's been amazingly nice weather for weeks!

Ive got to say having lived in Edmonton for most of my life and now toronto its a way different beast out east. Way more ice and and really slippery here. With that said though the only reason that guy didn't end up like the flex is because he was on the outside lane. They both looked like they were going outta control, and everyone was stopped on the highway cause that what happens in pile up. Good for him for thinking out of he box and going up the hill. The semi truck driver is unreal ! He managed to some how to scrape by everyone

That semi was crazy! Could you imagine that hitting you, hopefully it would be a quick death and not an hour or two of being trapped crushed like a soda can

i dont think we can really tell how fast the evo driver was going, cameras dont tell speed very well, always make you look like you are going faster then you really are

it should be reasonable to compare to the Flex and how much damage that happened to the Flex. Seems like it was a decent speed, but hardly unreasonable on a highway.

that semi driver had skills...

in the end, i dont care if you're involved in an accident on the freeway, totalled your car or something, but get the F off the highway. (unless you were dead). (or seriously injured) in which case tell somebody to PUSH

He said on his youtube comment "I knew i was driving too fast and braking would not have been a good idea." He very well could have been driving regular highway speed but that speed was obviously too fast for the conditions of the road / weather. With my job I put on an average of 4500km (2800mi) / month in my work truck and during the winter season up here in Canada I see these roads all the time and see people in the ditch all the time. I have not once hit the ditch on a highway from bad weather conditions in almost 14 years of driving. I have ditched the truck on back country logging roads in the winter but thats a different ball of wax. They hardly get any maintenance done to them.

Awesome Camera Shot lol.
That picture I posted is off of a highway camera that updates regularly and has probably changed 50+ times since yesterday. I imagine it was black from your comment... sometimes cameras don't take good pictures in the dark lol.
