Semi truck plows through traffic on crowded interstate in California
SACRAMENTO - Terrifying video of an 18-wheeler plowing through nine cars on a busy interstate was captured in California.
The crash happened around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday on Interstate 5 in Sacramento.
Footage captured by a camera on a passing Tesla vehicle shows the moment the semi crashed into the vehicles in front of it. The truck did not slow down until after it tipped over another vehicle.
One man, 39-year-old Joel Broussard, was the driver of a red Chrysler rear-ended by the big rig and pronounced dead at the scene.
Three other people were transported to the hospital. Their conditions are unknown.
Authorities are still investigating what caused the truck to ram into the other vehicles.
