April 1, 2012 at 8:05 PM ET - A truck driver in Norway considered
himself lucky Sunday, after a trailer and his tow truck were pulled off
of a steep snow-covered cliff. Eyewitness Gunn Iren Johnsrud watched as
the tow truck and its load were pulled from County Road 78 in Leirosen,
Norway.
The trailer being towed slid to the side of the road, where it fell
through a barrier and began descending down the steep slope to a river.
The quick-thinking driver immediately hopped out of his truck, which
was also dragged down the cliff. The driver was taken to a hospital in
Sandnessjøen, where he was treated for broken bones. The driver of the
tow truck is presently listed in stable condition at Helgelandssykehuset
Sandnessjøen.
