LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Dash cam footage from within the cab of a tractor-trailer, which was left dangling off a Kentucky bridge after a crash, was presented in court on May 15.

The footage from the March 1 crash on the Clark Memorial Bridge in Louisville shows 33-year-old Trevor Branham swerving his pickup to avoid hitting a stalled electric vehicle on the bridge. Branham then crashed into a Sysco semi-truck, driven by 26-year-old Sydney Thomas.
