A freelance photographer happened to have his camera at the ready when a semi-tractor trailer truck slammed into a car parked on the side of the I-805 freeway.
According to reports, just prior to the crash a driver clipped an electronic CalTrans sign and knocked it into the freeway. Numerous cars struck the debris, causing traffic to slow. One driver, Doug Calapan, pulled over to the shoulder to report the accident when a large big-rig truck came barreling down upon him. As the video shows, his car was struck with tremendous force.
Amazingly, the Mr. Calapan survived without serious injury.
