Man miraculously escapes death when massive pipe crushes his van

As the truck overturned, a piece of metal fell off of the overpass and onto the exit ramp below, where another vehicle was traveling, said troopers.

36-year-old Jesus Armando Escobar was driving down the American Interstate 4 motorway on Saturday when a scrap metal truck driver lost control on an overpass above the motorway.

A man in Florida miraculously survived a freaky accident during which his van was completely crushed by scrap metal.

The truck overturned when the driver lost control negotiating a curve and hit a guardrail, the station reported.

State troopers said the driver's side roof of the van was crushed by the pipe, but Escobar was able to walk away with minor injuries.

He miraculously suffered only minor injuries.

Jesus Armando Escobar was on an Orlando-area highway when there was a vehicle accident on the guardrail above him. "That's a one in a million shot", Olson said. "But they came out and said, 'Nope, he's only got scratches'".

Wharton was ticketed for careless driving, the paper reported.
