Driver Dives to Safety as 18-Wheeler Truck Tumbles off Overpass

An eighteen-wheeler fell off the side of a highway following a collision with another truck in Pasadena, Texas, on Thursday, August 18. Local media citing authorities reported there were no major injuries from the incident.

Dash-camera video captured by Prisco Saldivar shows the moment the vehicle toppled over the edge of the overpass, falling to the service road beneath.

Saldivar told Storyful he saw the driver of the truck jump from the vehicle as it began to rollover the edge of the barricade.

“It was like something you would only ever see in a movie,” Saldivar said. Credit: Prisco Saldivar via Storyful
