PICS: Minivan Gets Stuck to Big Rig, Dragged 16 Miles in Snowstorm
A Michigan family was taken on the ride of their lives after rear-ending a semi-truck and being dragged in their minivan for 16 miles!
Matt Menz and his family were driving home on I-75 to Roscommon when their minivan hit a snow squall and rear-ended the truck.
"It was a pretty helpless feeling," said Matt Menz. "(I thought) 'Oh my God, that all happened within fractions of a second.'"
They had just arrived at the Flint airport from a Florida vacation. Matt Menz and his family were driving home to Roscommon on northbound I-75 when their vehicle hit a snow squall and rear-ended the truck.
Menz says the minivan became lodged under the trailer and because of the white-out conditions, the driver of the semi-truck had no idea.
Pam Menz immediately dialed 911.
"I just want to get off the back of this thing," she said during her 911 call.
Roscommon and Crawford County Sheriff's Deputies used GPS for the phone to locate the vehicles.
A Crawford County Deputy was able to get in front of the truck and direct the driver to safety. Luckily no one suffered any serious injuries in the accident.
