I was getting angry that the car driver (cameraman) didn't even check whether the truck driver was okay - and then more trucks kept piling up. I'd get out of there as well. :'(

So technically it was the cameraman blocking the view of the accident in front that caused the truck to crash the barrier :|

Cameraman? I'd say idiot with NO sense to move out of the way. The truck probably would have been better off just plowing into the side of the trailer than cross the median and take out another car but that's 20/20 hindsight!

From the OP:

"I was blocked by two trucks on south bound I-95 at exit 9 in NJ (New Brunswick exit). I only wanted to take a picture while i was awaiting for them to clear up... And then I heard noise from behind...
I was barely missed.
Update: Once I turned off camera, I called in 911 and reported the accident. After that I came to the truck and the rest of the cars to verify they were alright. After arrival of NJ State Trooper and his dismissal confirming that he does not require my presence, I left the scene."

They better sign for the freight "damaged". Hope Estes pays more than $5 / lb when they pay claims.

39sec in... WTF?

there was a truck, a large truck, two huge trailers, blocking the whole road, all three or four lanes... smack dab in the middle of the frigging highway.
how on earth can someone crash into that after more than 20 seconds?!?!

listen to the sound, whoever it was started breaking at 38 seconds...
