The driver captured the incident on his dash cam, showing the motorist, who was hauling a camper, swinging wildly on the road before overturning.

The trucker explained that he was pulling double trailers, weighing more than 100,000 pounds, when the accident unfolded in front of him.

“I’m fully loaded at 104,000 lbs with rebar on a set of doubles,” he wrote.

In the clip, the SUV’s camper can be seen swinging violently as it passes the truck. Unable to regain control, the motorist then flips off the road onto the left shoulder, sending up a thick cloud of smoke and dust.

The trucker’s vision is completely obscured as he pulls to right and comes to a stop.

“Gives you a good idea of how long it takes to slow down a heavy-laden truck going 65mph,” the trucker wrote.

After the incident, the trucker left his rig to check on the occupants of the overturned SUV.

“Dad and his two kids were ok,” he added.
