It's possible that he was in 2wd mode and didn't have snow tires on. Hit a patch where it was slick, and the back end twitched. And like what Berzerker said, the driver panic's and let's off the gas causing the weight transfer, hits the cube van and then into on coming traffic.

Wrong, common misconception that two forces colliding equals double the speed.

I thought the climactic part was when the SUV hit the first truck, then I saw the semi in the background and



RIP, that was hard to watch

I'm pretty sure your car would fall apart if it got hit like that.

some english description if viewed within youtube:

I'm not sure about the laws and regulation where that crash happened, but here in BC the GVW of a tractor truck and semi trailer is usually around
47,000kg, while B-trains get to 63,500kg. I was told that there are a few occasions that a permit will be issued for overweight transporting. The same trucks when travelling in the US their GVW stickers will be 80,000lb and 105,000lbs. When you do the math, they are less than what is allowed here in BC, as much as 1/3 less. Either way, survivability of the occupants in the smaller vehicles is very unlikely. If you watch/read the news, whenever a passenger vehicle crashed into a tractor, the occupants of the smaller vehicle often die while the truck driver is shaken but unharmed. Only time the truck driver dies is if he crashes into another tractor/semi or goes into a river/off the cliff.
