An accident caught on a tow truck’s dash cam shows a car slamming into a pickup that had broken down on Highway 401 in Toronto, Canada.

Amazingly, no one was seriously injured, according to

A tow truck driver from Metro One Auto Services said the collision occurred just seconds after he stopped to help around 7 p.m Saturday. A man and a woman were inside the pickup and another man was standing beside it at the time.

The accident happened during a police crackdown on drivers who violate the ‘slow down or move over law’ enacted for emergency vehicles.

“That could have easily been a fatal or a multi-fatal and amazingly no one was seriously injured in that crash,” said Sgt. Kerry Schmidt of the Ontario Provincial Police. “You look at that dramatic video and it’s breathtaking.”
