In Freak Highway Incident, Two Trucks Lose Brakes and Take Same Runaway Ramp

This video captures the sight and the sound.

One car was heading downhill on a mountainous highway and saw the semitruck in front of them lose its brakes and have to take a runaway truck ramp to stop the vehicle. Amazingly, immediately behind them was another truck suffering the same fate.

Watch what happens next in this video uploaded to TikTok by user @kimmie_livin_life. (Note: There is some mature audience language here.)


The experience was described by the uploader of the video like this:

"We were in between both trucks when they lost brakes at the same time. Thankfully, both drivers are ok. But this really shook me. I called 911."

We're glad nobody got hurt, and we marvel at what an amazing coincidence it was to have two trucks lose their brakes at the same place and the same time. Thankfully the runaway truck ramp was there and did its job.

It would certainly have been scary to be in the car caught between the trucks. We're glad that her immediate reaction was to call 911 just to be on the safe side.
