CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Cement Truck Flips Over, Crashes in College Station

More Video...

Good to Know:

  • Dr. Guan Zhu captured the accident on his dash camera, which he installed a year ago.
  • No one was seriously injured in the accident.

COLLEGE STATION - A College Station man walked away with his life and video of an accident that could have been much worse.

Dr. Guan Zhu, a professor at Texas A&M University, was driving his Toyota Sienna minivan north on Wellborn road around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon, coming to a stop at the Rock Prairie intersection when a cement truck driver coming from the opposite direction ran the red light and lost control, causing his truck to roll over and smash into Dr. Zhu's van.

Incredibly, Dr. Zhu only suffered minor injuries. He installed a dash camera about a year ago in case he was involved in an accident. It came in handy today, as you can see from the video with this story.

"It's what happened, you know, I could not remember in my memory, a truck is coming, and I could not remember exactly how it happened and then the video says that's how it happened, kind of turning like 45 degrees before it hits my vehicle," Dr. Zhu said.

The driver of the cement truck did not suffer major injuries and was given a ticket at the scene.

The truck spilled its load of cement all over the northbound lanes of Wellborn. It took crews several hours to clean up the mess.
