New dashcam video shows the moment a semi-truck hit a snowplow in Wisconsin during blistery conditions on Wednesday, part of a 48-car pileup that left one person dead.
The accident happened in Polk, Wisconsin along Interstate 41, approximately an hour northwest of Milwaukee.
In the dashcam video, a truck can be seen driving up ahead as snow conditions and low visibility sweep the highway.
The truck suddenly drives behind several vehicles seemingly stopped on side of the road and a semi-truck turned sideways blocking several lanes of traffic.
Once the truck clears the other semi, it suddenly begins to swerve, potentially to avoid at least three vehicles on its right side.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
As the truck is swerving and narrowly avoiding some cars, it hits a snowplow, which rolls over and down into a ditch.
The truck, meanwhile, is badly damaged in the crash, ripped apart by the impact.

William Van Aacken, who recorded the semi-truck crash on his Tesla dashcam video, said the dangerous whiteout conditions appeared out of nowhere and that it wasn't even snowing when he got on the road earlier.
'Visibility cut and then all the sudden I was seeing the semi in front of me and then you could see stuff in the ditch on the left and the ditch on the right and then just the unfolding of the semi hitting the dump truck in front of me,' Van Aacken said to WISN 12.
