Driver Pinned Between 2 Tractor-Trailers Miraculously Survives
A man’s SUV was pinned between two tractor-trailers, yet he miraculously walked away unharmed.
David Grimes was driving on Interstate 65 in Tennessee on Friday when he slowed down because of traffic. That’s when he said a tractor-trailer hit him. Seconds later, he was hanging by his seatbelt as his car was stuck vertically between the two trucks.
“I thought there was no way anybody could’ve walked away from that, but he did, and he’s OK,” his tearful wife, Melissa Grimes, said.
“It broke my heart that she had to see that and not be able to see me and know that I was OK,” David Grimes said of the incident.
Grimes walked away with a slight burn from the SUV’s air bag, but is OK.
The husband and father of two young boys said there is only one word that can describe what happened Friday afternoon.
"What other than a miracle," Grimes said.
The sales representative did not take Monday off. He was back on the road to Murfreesboro, to the call he missed Friday because of the wreck.
