The man who recorded video of a 68-car pile up on I-95 over the weekend said Monday he was on his way home from a soccer game when he saw the accident. 

"I basically showed the video for educational purposes because there's a sign that says the bridge freezes first," Marvellous Amasiatu said.

He said he hopes that a bigger sign replaces the one on the bridge--and that his video teaches people the danger of driving in icy conditions.

He said it was hard watching the cars slide toward the flames, knowing he couldn't help.

Amasiatu has been a nurse for 10 years and is going to school to become a teacher.

He wants to teach safety, knowing car crashes are one of the main causes of death in the U.S.
