Truck Goes Airborne In Unbelievable Accident Caught On Vine, Driver Miraculously Survives [VIDEO]
Vine is place where people can upload videos that they shoot in real time for up to six seconds. The videos are usually cute, funny, creative, or - if they are like the video of a truck going airborne over a bridge and crashing into a creek down below uploaded by Vine user Alex Stack - they can be some of scariest jaw dropping raw footage you've ever seen.
A 58-year-old Michigan man remains hospitalized, but is expected to make a full recovery after his pickup truck literally launched over a highway guardrail and crashed into a shallow creek. The accident happened last Friday (8/16) on I-96 and was captured on Vine video (above) by someone in a nearby vehicle and uploaded to the video sharing site by user Alex Stack.
The short video shows the man driving in the median between the eastbound and westbound lanes while pulling a trailer with a lawn mower. In the most breathtaking part of the video his Doge Dakota is then seen ramping over an embankment before falling over 10 feet into a creek down below. Luckily, the creek is very shallow at this time of the year.
The first thing that came to mind when I saw this video was I-10 over the Atchafalaya Basin, which is notorious for lethal accidents. Doctors believe the man was suffering from another medical condition before the crash, which is a reminder of why we should always pay close attention while driving, because you never know what situations could arise in a split second.
Though we don't know if the person who took the video was actually driving, my first suggestion would be NOT trying to take a Vine video while you're at the wheel.
Be safe out there!
