From the Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee, MA, comes this video shot with two XDCam EX. This is a shock video of the "Shockwave" truck, driven by Kent Shockley and designed by his dad, Les Shockley, on it's (unexpectedly) final run. Something went wrong while the truck was at-speed, causing it to veer to the right and do a series of rolls. Footage was taken from two cameras and there is a slow motion replay near the end, showing what happened in more detail. The driver miraculously escaped uninjured, thanks to the great safety engineering that went into the cab of the truck.
