If you've been having an easy day and haven't received your daily dose of unmitigated terror, then this video is for you. Dr. Guan Zhu, a Texas A&M professor, caught the above view on his dashcam in College Station, TX, as a cement truck ran a red light, lost control and rolled into his Toyota Sienna minivan.

Although he received only minor injuries, Dr. Zhu says that he blacked out during the accident. The truck driver also avoided serious injuries, and the Sienna took the hit rather well too. Scroll down to watch the footage and report from KBTX. Hopefully, this is as close anyone else ever gets to a terrifying event of this nature.

      Toyota will soon issue a recall to prevent incidents like this from happening again.

        I think the driver of this cement truck is going to get recalled.

      Dr. Zhu should sue. He must be a very honest man because that incident was grossly negligent and he could have won big on that.

      Only in America. You can: 1. run a red light, 2. speeding 3. which led to rolling the truck, 4. endangering others (luckily no one got hurt) and only receive a ticket. If you are caught drink and drive, even if you obey lights, speed limit and everything else, you'll be sued until bankrupt.

        What's he supposed to get? No one was killed or seriously injured. Do you think he should be thrown in jail or charged with something serious? He ran the red light which caused the accident and was cited appropriately. If there was a fatality or something then naturally they would have to visit the idea of other charges or something.

          You Americans. It's only serious when somebody gets killed, eh?
