Semi truck finds itself dangling from Missouri highway


A semi truck was left dangling from a highway in Missouri on Tuesday. 

The single-vehicle accident happened on May 18th at around 10 a.m. in Shrewsbury, Missouri. 

According to The St. Louis Post Dispatch, the truck driver lost control on the wet highway, which sent the truck sliding. The rig then struck a guardrail, righted itself, lost control again, veered across the highway, and went through another guardrail, leaving the rig hanging from Interstate 44 near the Jamieson Avenue exit. 

The driver was rescued by local firefighters, and was miraculously unhurt. 

The eastbound lanes of the highway were partially shut down until after 1 p.m., but have since been reopened.
