Could this be an attempt at insurance fraud?

We seen plenty of insurance scams in our time and we’re not sure if the driver of this BMW X5 made a pretty poor decision in this scenario or simply was looking to have his insurance company cover some repairs on the rear-end of their BMW X-5 but either way, not the smartest choice.

When the BMW driver sees a semi-truck, that clearly would not be able to stop fast enough to avoid a collision, this X5 driver decides to clearly change lanes and pound the brakes, immediately getting rear-ended by the giant truck. Perfect execution of step one of an insurance scam???

It’s clear to us that the bottom line here is that the BMW driver is not the smartest tool in the shed as they could have had an even bigger claim for their insurance company had things gone a bit differently. Furthermore, in today’s modern world of smartphone video, we’re pretty sure that insurance companies are beating a lot more of these scams.
