An overturned tractor-trailer crushed an SUV but leaving the SUV’s driver “miraculously” alive. The driver of the tractor-trailer was charged with careless driving, according to Ontario police on Wednesday.
The suspect, a 52-year-old man, was charged by the Ontario Provincial Police when his tractor-trailer overturned onto its side on Highway 403 near Oakville, Ontario on a Monday afternoon.
The truck’s overturning had forced a Mazda CX7 out off the road, fell into a ditch before the truck itself landed above the SUV and trapping the 38-year old driver.
The SUV driver, identified to be Edyta Tobiasz, had survived the crash but was trapped in the vehicle for more than two hours. Emergency crews rushed to the scene to pull her out from the vehicle.
Tobiasz told CTV Toronto that she felt scared and saw the trailer falling down on her car and thought maybe that was it. She added that she did not have time to do anything.
Whilst still trapped in her vehicle, Tobiasz was able to find her cell phone and called her husband while emergency crews were working to pull her out.
She thanks God for being alive and for giving her a second chance at life. She said “It is a miracle.”
The tractor-trailer driver from Mississauga, Ont. meanwhile was charged with careless driving.
