WATCH: Trucker somehow avoids hitting dog that bailed out of moving car on freeway 

Published:

A truck driver managed to avoid hitting a small dog that jumped out of a moving car on a Los Angeles highway last month. 

The incident happened on January 27th on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles, California. 

In the video, the dog can be seen jumping out of the window of the car moving at full speed and landing directly in the path of an oncoming semi truck. The trucker then slams on the brakes and narrowly avoids hitting the dog, who then scurries off the highway in front of another car that manages to avoid hitting it. 

No accidents were reported as a result of the incident, but the dog did suffer a fractured hip. The dog has since recovered.
