Video shows why you shouldn't drive like a jackass in the rain

We've all been there. You're on the freeway, it's raining, and some huge truck roars past because a car company has convinced them that steel makes them invincible.  

In the best cases, these maneuvers that laugh in the face of mortality only result in elevated heart rates for nearby drivers and a few muttered curses, and in the the worst, well, you know. 

The following video, caught via dashcam, shows the in-between: a vehicle not causing any harm to other motorists and finding out the hard way what happens when you test the limits of Mother Nature.   

The clip, captured by MI Roadcam, shows a Dodge Ram speeding through traffic on 696 on wet pavement, then cutting through three lanes of traffic and losing control. 

He's grabbing life by the horns, alright.
