Dodge Truck Almost Kills Motorcyclist, Hits Car at Funeral Stop

dodge dakota truck almost wrecks motorcycle


Watch what this footage captured by motorcycle rider Cody Vice, while he was riding his motorcycle on suck creek mountain in Chattanooga, TN. The video captures a dodge dakota pickup truck not paying attention to the road ahead. The clip is shot from Cody’s POV as he is stopping in respect for a funeral procession in the oncoming lane.

I can’t say this is the first time I have seen people not care to stop their vehicle and show respect to the deceased’s family and friends. This is the first time that I have seen it cause an accident though. More importantly as Cody points out, if he wasn’t practically off the shoulder of the road. The speeding dodge dakota pick up truck would have collided with his motorcycle at the same speed he collided with the nissan altima! Judging by the damage to the nissan car it very well could have been a deadly crash between the truck and Cody’s motorcycle. Thankfully it wasn’t, and we have a great reminder to show some respect the next time your passing a funeral procession, or at the very least slow down and assume other people are in front of you.

What do you guys think? Do you stop for funeral procession in your town? Was this driver possibly preoccupied by his phone or something else? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to like the post!
