TV: Watch as the truck skids down the cliff – with the driver inside!

By  |  0 Comments

SLIPPERY NORWEGIAN ROADS. Here is the scary news clip that will have you think twice before driving with lousy tires on icy winter roads.

As the lorry, loaded with fish and reportedly with bad tires on, is being towed, it skids on the snowy road – and tumbles down a deep cliff dragging the tow truck with it.

At the last second, one driver escapes, but his colleague doesn’t have the same luck: he goes down with the truck. As it turns out, the Lithuanian driver is later rescued from outside the wreckage, with severe injuries, Scandinavian media reports.

The accident, filmed by a following driver, happened last Sunday in Norway along highway 78 in the city of Leirfjord, Norwegian TV channel TV2 reports.
