A CLOSE CALL VIDEO posted to YouTube this week has thousands of people appreciating the value of dashcams.
The video shows a car turning left from Highway 97 onto Highway 99, and nearly getting slammed into by an unloaded logging truck barrelling down the highway.
It’s a video that must be viewed several times to truly grasp how close the call was, and the factors that kept the collision from taking place.
