A motorist walked away from what could have been a devastating crash without a scratch, Sacramento firefighters say.
The crash happened on Sunday, June 9, on southbound I-5 near Arena Boulevard in Sacramento, California, according to KTVU.
Firefighters say that the motorist “made contact” with a semi truck and was pulled underneath the trailer before coming out on the other side of the truck.
The car sustained heavy damage, but in an image tweeted out by the Sacramento Fire Department, you can see that the motorist wasn’t hurt and that he appears to be in good spirits.
No other injuries were reported.
