The rules of the road are pretty obvious most of the time, so we have to assume that the driver of a Lowe’s truck that ran a red light and caused a dangerous crash didn’t do so because he didn’t know red means stop, but that some other undisclosed distraction was to blame.

A video filmed on a driver’s dashcam captured the moments a truck plowed through a red light and was T-boned in the intersection by a red vehicle, causing the truck to tip over and hit into two other vehicles.

Concerned civilians got out of their cars to assess the damage and to see if anyone needed immediate medical attention.

Fortunately, only minor injuries were reported.

It is not clear what caused the driver to run the red light, but he sure is lucky no one got killed.
