Watch this unbelievable footage of a dump truck slamming into an Ohio DOT service vehicle outside of Akron

May 14th

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

That's just....wow.

Here's a moving detail you may have missed: The two motorists who pull over and begin running toward the conflagration to help the injured:

Note that the guy in the second car jukes through two tractor-trailers to get over. That's admirable.

The story:

Deputies from the Summit County Sheriff's Office who were called to the scene had to extract the drivers of both vehicles.

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.

Drive carefully out there, folksโ€”in particular if you're behind the wheel of a massive freaking dump truck!
