Crashes with semi trucks are one of the most fatal accidents on the road. Likewise, a wreck with two semi trucks is even more deadly, or so one would think. Furthermore, one Oregon man is lucky to be alive after his close brush with death following a crash with two semi trucks. The chain-reaction crash involving 26 vehicles happened on I-84 following a semi, which lost control on black ice.
The most dramatic part of the crash was when, 27-year-old, Kaleb Whitby hit the back of a jackknifed tractor-trailer, which flipped his pickup. Following Whitby's first crash, he was horrified to see yet another semi hurling towards him. As the truck neared Whitby, he grabbed the wheel and prayed as the second semi smashed into his vehicle. As a result, Whitby was pinned between both tractor-trailers until witnesses came by to rescue him. Miraculously, Whitby walked away from the scene with only minor cuts and bruises, and no major injuries. Additionally, although many were injured in the large pile up crash, no one was killed.
