Police dashcam captures scary truck rollover crash

Updated: 

A police dashcam captured the shocking moment a truck rolled over after taking a turn too quickly.

The shocking footage has just been shared by Prineville Police Department and shows an accident that happened two years ago.

The video was recording a routine traffic stop in Oregon when a truck entered a turn too quickly. The rear tyres lost grip, sending the vehicle into a slide, which resulted in it toppling over.

In a statement, the police department said: "We have decided to show this video to get awareness out there about speeding, distracted driving (to include texting and cell phone use), following too closely, failure to maintain lane of travel, and of course drinking and driving.

"Please remember posted speed limits are limits designed under perfect conditions. Don't forget about you and the limits of your vehicle and most of all road and weather conditions."
