Driver survives after being pulled from ‘virtually disintegrated’ semi truck


A truck driver survived a multi-vehicle crash that completely obliterated his rig in Michigan over the weekend. 

The accident happened in Casco Township, Michigan on Interstate 196 near Exit 22 on Friday, September 18th at around 5:15 p.m.

According to Midwest Family News, a J.B. Hunt semi truck was parked on the shoulder of I-196 northbound for a tire repair when a second semi truck suddenly slammed in it. The force of the impact completely obliterated the second truck and left the driver with ‘multiple injuries.’ 

Both the truck driver and tire repair man were transported to nearby hospitals. The driver of the J.B. Hunt truck was apparently uninjured in the incident. 

Interstate 196 northbound was shut down at Exit 20 while officials investigated the incident and cleared the wreckage. 

As of Tuesday, September 22nd, the incident was still under investigation.
