A Florida man somehow survived a harrowing accident over the weekend after a large piece of scrap metal fell from a tractor-trailer and crushed his van.
One look at these images, courtesy of the Florida Highway Patrol, and you’ll agree, it was an absolute miracle that 36-year-old Jesus Armando Escobar of Orlando walked away with only a few minor injuries on Saturday when the metal fell from an interstate overpass and landed on top of his van, smashing the roof.
The metal became loose when a truck lost control and struck a guardrail. The truck flipped over and caused the metal object to fly off the overpass.
The driver of the truck also had minor injuries and was ticketed for careless driving. Escobar’s wife, Aricilli, says that her husband is “blessed to be alive”. I’ll say! ~ Jason
