Trucker deftly avoids person who exited car in the middle of the highway 

Published:

A truck driver was able to avoid a serious tragedy by swerving to avoid a person standing on the highway in Michigan on Monday. 

The accident happened on Monday, July 10th on Interstate 696 in Warren, Michigan. 

Deputy Police Commissioner William Reichling told Fox 2 Detroit that “it appears that for some unknown reason, one of the passengers of the Ford Fusion got out of the vehicle exited the vehicle on the freeway.”

“There was a semi-truck behind them that swerved to avoid this person which resulted in a collision between the semi and Ford Fusion,” he continued. 

It is unclear if the car was still moving at the time the person exited the vehicle. No one in the Ford Fusion was hurt. The truck driver was taken to the hospital as a precaution but was not hurt. 

“Our driver is currently in the hospital, but it’s our understanding that he didn’t sustain any injuries,” the trucking company said in a statement.
