If the roads are wet take steps to avoid hydroplaning—namely slow down!
Video from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol illustrates that point fast. The two Stringtown firefighters that were struck by the hydroplaning trailer and SUV thankfully walked away with only bruises.
Dramatic Dash Cam Video: This is a graphic reminder to slow down when streets are slick. This is from a wreck we worked several weeks ago. The 2 men hit are Stringtown firefighters and this video came from the Stringtown police chief. Both men are ok - no broken bones. pic.twitter.com/ieX7mzqpc6— OK Highway Patrol/DPS (@OHPDPS) September 3, 2019
