Florida driver survives crash when metal object falls on van

A man in Florida miraculously survived a freakish accident during which his van was completely crushed by scrap metal.

A minivan driver narrowly escaped death when a large metal pipe fell onto his vehicle on I-4 near Orlando.

A man miraculously survived after a large piece of scrap metal fell from a truck that lost control and overturned in Florida on Saturday, crushing his van under the overpass.

Despite the giant hunk of metal hitting the driver's side of the van Final Destination style, the driver managed to get away somehow with only minor injuries.




The metal became loose when a truck lost control and struck a guardrail.

As to the miracle, Jesus Armando Escobar, it is out of the hospital... without a single memory of the accident.

Theodore Olson, who works at a towing service in Orlando, says he's seen a lot of wrecks but nothing like this. "But they came out and said, 'Nope, he's only got scratches.' It's insane".

Wharton was ticketed for careless driving, the paper reported.
