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.
