A pickup truck driver has been charged with DUI after a terrifying crash that was caught on camera in Boston.

Traffic cameras captured the moment Vannak Sao, 33, slammed into a snowbank and careened right over the elevated highway barrier. 

You can see Sao's truck plummet to the roadway below after smashing through a light pole and a chain link fence. Luckily, he did not strike any other vehicles.

Sao, who said he fell asleep at the wheel Sunday morning, suffered some bruises to his face and a fractured nose.

In the aftermath of the crash, Sao said he thought he merely hit a snowbank and rolled over.

“When I woke up in the hospital, they told me I dropped like 50, 60 feet,” he said.  “I watched the video like a couple of times.”

He called the incident “irresponsible.”

“I have to accept the consequences of my actions,” he said.
