Man Pinned Between 2 Semi-Trucks Recounts Terrible Crash
A dozen people were hurt in a massive 26-vehicle accident in Oregon over the weekend.
One of those people, Kaleb Whitby, is particularly lucky to be alive.
Whitby's Chevy Silverado was crushed like a can between two semi-trucks, pinning him in between. Amazingly, he walked away from the terrible crash with just two band-aids.
Whitby called in to "Fox and Friends" today and explained that he was driving down a hill on Interstate 84 in thick fog on Saturday morning.
When he saw a semi-truck jackknifed across the road in front of him, he knew he couldn't stop in time, so he aimed for the trailer.
The impact flipped Whitby's truck around, leaving him stalled out in the highway with his passenger side facing oncoming traffic.
"The next thing I know, I look out my back window and I see the lights of a semi-truck barreling down on me," he said.
Whitby - who has a two-year-old son and a wife who is pregnant with another child - said he didn't have a moment where his life flashed before his eyes.
"I closed my eyes and held on to that wheel as tight as I could. Made sure I said my prayers, because what can you do in a situation like that where you have absolutely no control?"
"All I could think about was my wife and my son and just hoping that it wasn't my time and praying that I'd be able to get through it," Whitby said.
About 30 minutes after the accident, Whitby was freed from his vehicle, incredibly walking away with just a little soreness, a bruise on his eyebrow and a couple small cuts on his hand.
