In what seems like a scene straight out of a movie like Final Destination, the driver of a Nissan Xterra required major extraction on Friday, October 11, after massive logs from a logging truck smashed through the SUV’s windshield and made it all the way through to the rear hatch.
Judging from the photos posted by the Whitfield County Fire Department, you’ll wonder how the driver even survived.
The cause of the log truck accident is still being investigated, so whether or not the truck driver was negligent in any way has yet to be determined. According to several Facebook commenters, the Nissan driver dropped coffee and was digging for it at the time of the crash, though that has not officially been confirmed.
In a Facebook comment on the Whitfield County Fire Department, Jonathan Forester, who claims to be the logging truck driver, briefly offered his side of the story.
“Everybody can think and say what they want I was driving the log truck,” Forester wrote. “And I have talked to the other guy in the accident. We both know what happened, I’m just glad he is ok. He even cut up and made jokes on the phone. Sounds like a pretty good guy to me. Anyone else would have been trying to put the blame on the log truck.”
All things considered, it really is a miracle that the SUV driver was able to make it out in one piece. Absolutely unreal.
