Nov. 18, 2021 — First responders anticipated the worst after they arrived at a wreck scene on I-5 in Washington state.
A tractor trailer rear-ended a 2015 Nissan Altima Tuesday afternoon on the Skagit River Bridge close to Mount Vernon. The impression folded the automotive in half and left it flattened beneath the truck’s wheels.
“There’s no way, no way somebody survived that,” stated witness Mike DeWitt, according to TV station KTRK.
But an officer received a shock when he approached the wreck, state trooper Rocky Oliphant stated.
“He walked up, he walked around the car and he heard, ‘Help!’ and he said, ‘Oh my goodness,'” Oliphant stated.
A tow truck lifted the entrance wheels of the tractor-trailer off the automotive and the 46-year-old lady who’d been driving crawled out of a niche the place the passenger window was once.
She walked away from the mangled automotive underneath her personal energy, KRTK reported
“There’s really not a word to describe this collision,” Oliphant tweeted. “Miraculously believed to be minor injuries. The car was struck from behind, folded the car in half, and semi came to rest on top of the car. In my 14-year career, I have never seen anything like it.”
The lady solely had ache in her head and ribs, troopers stated. The driver of the semi was cited for following too carefully.
