The video was recorded at 9:45 a.m. by one of the security cameras at the shop.
A pickup truck pulled over to the right side of the westbound lanes, then did a U-turn in front of a white Tesla and proceeded to drive east in the left-hand westbound lanes. Oncoming traffic can be scene avoiding the pickup.
Soon after two vehicles were reported in different locations in the ditch on the highway.
Emergency crews were on scene westbound just west of the Vedder Road highway on-ramp, one in the ditch and the other up against the cable barrier.
The incident happened around 10 a.m. on Oct. 15 and traffic was slow in the area.
