A delivery van driver in Ukraine miraculously escaped death after reportedly falling asleep while driving and causing a massive crash.
CCTV footage at the scene of the accident shows the moment the van veered off lane and crashed into a truck. The incident happened on 28 August, Briefly.co.za learned.
The van's front area was completely smashed and the driver's door ripped off. Incredibly, the unnamed driver was still in his seat and only seemed dazed.
Other motorists appeared in the footage and checked on the driver. They were surprised to see him calmly extricating himself from the crumbled van and walking off.
He appeared physically unharmed. According to Daily Mail, the truck's driver and two passengers sustained minor injuries and were taken to hospital.
A witness, Zil Nicholas, described what happened:
I saw that the driver was moving strangely and crashed into the oncoming vehicle. We think that he had fallen asleep while he was driving.
It's unclear whether police action has been taken against the van's driver or not. However, he can count his lucky stars that he's still alive.
