TEXAS CREEK, CO - New surveillance video shows the moment a runaway semi truck ran a stop sign, narrowly missing a serious, high-speed crash with an approaching car and SUV.

A timestamp on the video from Barry's Den Diner shows this happened Sunday afternoon at the intersection of Highway 50 and Highway 69 east of Cotopaxi in Fremont County. Colorado State Patrol says the truck's brakes had overheated and it could not stop. The semi ended up crashing down an embankment.

Despite the serious damage to the semi, no one was hurt.
