Every once in a while, a diesel engine will run away, causing the throttle to stick wide open, leaving just about any engine to complete catastrophe. This time, it’s a Peterbilt semi-truck that becomes a victim of this phenomenon, revving out to maximum load on the side of the freeway.
All the driver can do is stand by and watch as the truck pours out smoke, getting closer and closer to its unavoidable demise.
Check out the situation in the video below as the truck attempts to off itself. While it is unfortunate to destroy your truck, this could have gone even more wrong if parts started flying.
