Man pinned between two semi-trucks walks away from wreck
Kaleb Whitby, 27, is lucky to be alive after he became sandwiched between two semi-trucks on an Oregon freeway on Saturday and walked away with just a few scratches on his hand.
The husband and father told The Oregonian that he was driving on Interstate 84 when his Chevy Silverado collided with a semi-truck. Once he was hit, he closed his eyes, held on to his steering wheel and prayed as the second semi slammed into his truck.
"I just braced and hoped that everything would be all right," Whitby said.
After the accident, people walking by helped to pull him out of the wreckage.
Following the crash, Whitby went to the hospital for a checkup, and told The Oregonian that all he needed were a few Band-Aids.
The accident was part of a 26-vehicle pile-up involving more than 100 people, according to the Associated Press. As many as 70 vehicles were stranded at the scene and about a dozen people were reported injured as a result of black ice.
