TRUCKS on a HILL - How an icy hill ruins a German trucker's day.........
It has been snowing for some weeks now and our town ran out of salt. So most smaller roads are quite slippery. The one shown here is no exception, most trucks spin out here. There are three ways of getting out of that. a) reverse down the whole hill b) drive through the road on the left c) manage to get your truck in the LIDL parking lot to the right, which is narrow...and most trucks get stuck in the snowdrifts on the right side of the entrance and the left side of the road.....the day before this was recorded, a truck was stuck there for 30 minutes, but witness someone easily breaking that record.....

Original Portland Snow Car Crashes 2007
This is the full length video I shot from our apartment building in January, 2007. The steep hill on SW 20th and SW Salmon Street in Portland, Oregon was covered in snow and ice. The snow storm was not predicted and left a lot of people unprepared for the commute. Nevertheless, people still attempted to give it a try. Morons.

11/21/2010 Minnesota Ice Roads And Crashes
Freezing rain, mist and drizzle put down a slick coat of ice over the roads of central and southern Minnesota today. The ice caused hundreds of crashes causing serious injuries including two fatal accidents.
The footage I shot of the slick road condition was from the Saint Cloud and Sauk Centre area of Minnesota.
The first part of the footage shows slick roads in Saint Cloud, MN where cars were having a hard time dealing with the ice covered roads.
The second half of the footage was from Sauk Centre where a Semi Truck rolled over after trying to avoid a van that spun out and lost control in front of the Semi.
When the Semi crashed, the cargo of frozen fish broke through the top of the trailer and spilled out onto the side of Interstate 94. The remaining cargo in the trailer had to be removed by the tow truck crews prior to being able to lift the rig back onto it's wheels.
WTF? (What would you have done?)
Well, derp. Of any of my videos to get popular, this wouldn't have been my guess. The internet is weird.
What would you have done?
The motorcycle is a Kawasaki KLX250sf. The camera is a ContourHD. And I am a motovlogger who was having an off day. Sometimes you let the real-life trolls get under your skin. Yes, the kids in the car were laughing at me. No, they were not lost or having mechanical problems.
