In what one State Trooper is calling "nothing short of a miracle," a Washington woman has survived a crash that left her vehicle flattened under a huge semi-truck.
The accident occurred on Mount Vernon's Skagit River Bridge, which an unidentified 46-year-old woman was crossing in her Nissan Thursday when she was rear-ended by a commercial truck, according to Washington State Trooper Rocky Oliphant. The semi ended up driving on top of the vehicle, leaving a flattened pile of metal under its cab, photos reveal. Moments later, the woman crawled out of the debris, Oliphant says.
"There is no explanation to why she's alive, let alone suffer minor injuries," Oliphant says. "She was able to pull herself out with her own power, which is incredible. It is nothing short of a miracle in my opinion. I don't know how she survived this."
