Guy must have been either way WAY drunk or asleep at the wheel to drift into the on coming truck's lane.

Kudos to the driver of the semi for his great defensive driving skills... things would have turned out to be more catastrophic if he had not taken the dirt embankment.
Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst!

 I second that , ladder frame or not. Could have been worse if it was a gen 1. What a loss that would have been. Good thing it was only a gen 2

well the X might be totaled but I am sure the driver walked away. I had a guy road rage on my X , pre rock sliders. The X is tough.

I saw the NTSB testing results for the 1st gen X and it was given the #1 spot for roof strength. The explorer next to it was crushed really bad but it was hard to tell if the X was damaged in the picture.
BTW that was a first gen X. I slowed the video down and you can see the Nissan emblem in the middle of the rear hatch as 2nd gen X has it on the right side of the hatch.
