TULSA, OK – A man somehow survived after he crashed his truck into a support beam carried by an 18-wheeler on Friday, according to an article by KOKH.

The accident occurred Friday morning in Tulsa on the Broken Arrow Expressway near 129th East Avenue, when an 18-wheeler truck was hauling an oversized load, which included a support beam. It turned left on the roadway whenever the collision happened. The support beam crashed into the window, mere inches from hitting the truck driver’s face.

According to the article, police were “shocked” the truck driver was not killed. He was mildly injured but is expected to be okay.

The truck driver was also given a ticket for speeding-related conditions.
