this isn't about changing weather conditions, this is about dangerous aggressive driving

the pickup selfishly changed lanes from L2 to L1 to overtake the small white truck

when he changed into L1 he tailgated the vehicle infront of him.. forced that vehicle to make a dangerous lane-change into L2

usually when people tailgate they move as far left as possible, i guess so the driver infront can see them in their rear & right-view mirrors; while tailgating, left set of tires got caught in icy-slush.. spun.. putting so many other people's lives in danger

he got himself killed trying to tailgate another vehicle in the worst driving condition!

video description says: experienced driver, i disagree: that was no experienced driver

Horrific.
Very sad the ultimate price was paid for these actions.
I completely agree with iFlyy55, dangerous, aggressive and selfish. Hopefully no one else was injured.

That is scary.

About 2 weeks ago I was driving west on 401 around meadowvale. (right lane at 80 kph)

I caught a flash of head-light from left.
I looked in rear-view mirror to see a car pass by my rear bumper straight into the cement lane divider.
I thought he would nick me but it must have been more then a centimeter as all I heard was the very loud bang.

It was similar snow condition as the above video.
Scared the *EDIT* out of me.
