VIDEO | Driver Skids Down Grassy Median to Avoid Slamming Into Tractor-Trailer

Whoa!  Tami Potirala a trucker shared this video with WFMY News 2. She's a truck driver and on recent drive through Lexington, NC, she was almost rear-ended. In the video you see a driver zooming down the median to avoid hitting her tractor-trailer from behind.

Potirala said it happened just after 3pm on November 3 on I-85 north. A line of vehicles are at a complete stop due to an accident ahead of them.

Tami's words: “Traffic was stopped going north for an accident when this idiot slides by me in the median at a high rate of speed.“

She also shared the video with CDLLife, a trucking news and entertainment site.
