Close Call Truck Crash Las Vegas

That driver applied the brakes way too late. He should have been traveling a similar speed you were being that his lane had traffic further back than yours did. That trailer weights less than 10k lbs which is nothing for a tractor so essentially he bobtailing. Hard braking on those conditions can easily lock the drives up and send the truck into a slide.Hope the driver made it out OK because it looked like a hard hit and the jackknife did protrude into the cab from the looks of it.
