VIDEO: Tow Truck and Semi-Trailer Truck Fall Over Edge of Snowy Cliff in Leirfjord, Norway — North of Oslo

A truck tumbles 200 feet down a snow-covered cliff in Norway, taking a tow truck with it. The Lithuanian truck driver went down with the larger truck, suffering broken bones. The tow driver jumped out just in time.

A video shot from a car following a large tow truck towing another large truck shows a both trucks rolling over the edge. The tow truck driver managed to jump out of the driver’s seat of the tow truck, but the driver of the semi-trailer truck went over the edge of a cliff with his truck.

The truck did not have the right tires for the curving mountain road in Leirfjord about 435 miles north of Oslo, Norway.

The truck driver, who appeared to be driving a Volvo semi-triler tractor, survived, but broke several bones in the fall of about 200 feet that destroyed the truck and several trees on the cliff.

  1. whom ever the person who wrote the below captions of the truck going over the edge and the driver getting hurt is a freaking moron , who gives a shit about the trees it destroyed, isn’t the human worth more then so stupid trees. what is wrong with you people, you act like trees are more important then humans. no wonder why you nation is in the crapper and falling deeper in the shit hole abyss, you don’t know right from wrong or up from down. your pathetic people!!!

  2. Actually we were just writing the facts, and were actually thinking it was a good thing the trees were there to help absorb the fall. The trees probably saved the truck driver’s life. Instead of writing our speculation about the life-saving trees, we were hoping readers were smart enough to figure that out for themselves. The information about the human injuries was first in the sentence with the tree information an incidental after the human injury facts. It’s hilarious that you would think The Cardinal put priority on the trees over the human life, and even more hilarious that you reacted with such hate about ‘you nation’ … it looks like you imploded so badly over your false assumption that you couldn’t even write.
