Fender benders are common but distracted driving often makes what follows much worse. Here's another prime example.

In the video below from Monday morning on Interstate 235 in the Des Moines area, a fender bender has already occurred. As the video starts, an 18-wheeler is barreling down the interstate and clearly isn't paying attention to what's ahead. Thankfully the driver swerves at the last moment or this could've been a whole lot worse. It's just another reminder that we have to keep our eyes on the road at all times because things can change in an instant. Thank goodness the vehicles and people involved in the original accident are all missed as the truck goes racing by before heading into the ditch.
