You don't see major car accidents every day. You definitely don't see them like this:

During a press conference held in front of the scorched wreckage, ODOT District 4 Deputy Gery Noirot described the injured staffer as a married dad and a grandfather, and said that it was "nothing short of a miracle that he survived."
Noirot added that the injured man has been with the department for a decade and was on his way to pick up a piece of equipment when the crash occurred.
