A truck driver got incredibly lucky in this footage of an impressive save. 

In the clip, a truck loaded with some sort of gas begins rolling out of the shop and towards a cliff. The truck driver immediately tries to stop the rig, first with his hands and then by turning the wheel from outside of the cab, but quickly realizes stopping the rolling truck will take a more serious approach. 

The driver then hops into the cab and slams on the brakes just as the rig approaches the edge of a cliff. 

Great job, driver. This could have ended far worse. 

Check out the clip, below.
