This car-truck-bus accident illustrates the dangers associated with making a sudden turn when vehicles are around you. We all need to remember that when we decide to make a lane change or turn into a gas station that the vehicles behind us need enough forewarning to react. The same caution is needed for the vehicles in the opposite lane or the area where you're turning to.
