Tow Truck Accident in Norway: Narrow Escape!

By: Shawn Hess - April 4, 2012

You have to see this! In the following video taken out of Northern Norway, a tow truck driver hauls a tractor trailer up a winding snow-covered mountain road. Rounding a turn the trailer catches the edge of the cliff and begins to rapidly pull the tow truck toward the edge. The driver quickly hops out as the train of trucks goes rolling down the cliffside.

Apparently the tow truck driver is Norwegian and there was a man in the semi who rolled down the cliff with the truck. He is lithuanian, and is supposedly resting comfortably in a hospital bed relatively unharmed.

It was a narrow escape for the tow truck driver for sure! I bet he’ll be showing this video to a lot of people. It is amazing what we manage to catch on video these days. Check it out:
