Comments Off

A man is amazed that he escaped serious injury in Alabama after his pickup truck was driven over by an 18-wheeler. The trucking accident happened on Route 65 on Monday. The man suffered some slight injuries. The driver of the 18-wheeler was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Foro, 59, recalled seeing the windshield crack and the roof begin to crumple. Before he could react, the month-old trailer he was carting and most of his pickup truck had been crushed by an out-of-control semi that barreled down on top of him, Foro said.

The accident is being investigated by the local police department. It is unknown why the tractor trailer was out of control and drove onto the pickup truck and trailer.
