Trucker runs red light and hits seven vehicles while high

Shocking dashcam footage captured the terrifying moment a trucker, who later admitted he was on drugs, ran a red-light and caused an eight-vehicle pile-up.

Hunter Geslien admitted he smoked marijuana and took heroin not long before getting behind the wheel of the rig on the morning of November 13 last year.

Pennsylvania State Police said he was driving too fast when he ran a red light at the Resort drive intersection on Route 22 in Burrell Township.

The dashcam of one of the vehicles that was hit – a school bus carrying special education students – captured the moment his truck came hurtling across the intersection.

None of the students were hurt.

The 30-second clip ends moments after the driver of the bus reverses as the truck came towards it.

The driver – Terri Corrado – was praised by her bosses for her quick-thinking as the truck approached, the Indiana Gazette reports.

Her actions meant that two students, a caretaker and she avoided injury, according to the Gazette.

But one of the other drivers who was hit, Noah Overman, was trapped in his pickup truck and was later treated for injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Geslien, 40, of Naugatuck, Connecticut, was charged with a number of offences, including driving under the influence, recklessly endangering another person and possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Earlier this month, he waived his rights in Blairsville District Court and chose to face possible trial in the Indiana Court of Common Pleas.
