GREENSBURG, Ind. — A tractor trailer went airborne before exploding on Interstate 74 near Greensburg, Ind. Thursday.

According to WCPO-TV, the driver was forced off the highway by another driver who drifted into his lane.

The semi driver tried to swerve to avoid the car but ran off the south side of the interstate and up a hill. The truck “ramped” over the interchange and crashed on the other side.

Video of the crash was captured by a dash cam camera on another tractor trailer.

Amazingly the driver, and his son, survived the crash with only minor cuts and bruises.
