Orlando man OK after van is crushed in I-4 crash

A man narrowly escaped death in a weird crash in Florida Saturday morning.

The truck overturned when the driver lost control negotiating a curve and hit a guardrail, the station reported.

An Orlando man sustained only minor injuries when a large piece of scrap metal crushed his van after falling from a highway overpass Saturday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Escobar, a father of three, was exiting the interstate at the time. But the driver, 36-year-old Jesus Armando Escobar of Orlando, miraculously survived and suffered only minor injuries.

"If he had been sitting in any other seat, he would have likely been killed", officials told the local TV station.

"To be honest, I thought that there had been a death", said the employee of the towing service to the media.

The family believes Jesus was with Escobar during the accident. "But they came out and said, 'Nope, he's only got scratches.' It's insane".

The trucker was cited for careless driving.
