Same thing happened to 2 guys when I was in high school. No texting (it didn't exist yet) but they had been drinking & were hot dogging in an Opel GT.
Whipped out to pass a slow moving semi only to run smack into an even slower one in the next lane. Car went completely under the trailer, shearing off the roof & their heads !

Trailer is supposed to have a crash bar on the back of it to prevent vehicles from going complete under? I guess it didn’t work?

Get use to seeing this. With all the new hands free driving cars that are becoming all the rage. GMC new one towing an Airstream while the driver is playing patty Cake. IDIOTS.

Opel GT... not thought about that in years. Guy had one here years ago, sitting in the front yard. Want that body fibreglass?

They were metal cars, but because the styling was similar to the Vet's, they were dubed the "poor mans Corvette".

Since the bumper support is intact and everything above it is gone, I’d assume that the tractor trailer did have the appropriate bumper in place. It doesn’t STOP vehicles from going underneath it makes it harder to do so… hit it hard enough and you’ll go underneath it, well, some of you will.

So much for the mandatory safety bumper on that truck trailer. Guillotine
It's a safety bar, not an impenetrable wall. You can beat any safety device if you try hard enough.

Meanwhile, if you are low enough, you can make a clean getaway ...



(the clip that follows with all the yelling appears to be from a Hellcat driver )
