Driver's amazing escape as truck plunges 200ft drop down a snow-covered cliff

A lorry driver in Norway has had a lucky escape when he survived an accident which saw his truck plunge 200ft down a snow-covered cliff.

The Lithuanian driver was being towed up a serpentine mountain road in Leirfjord, because it did not have the right tyres when it slid on the ice.

This caused it to tip over the guard rail and fall down the cliff taking the rescue vehicle with it.

While footage from another car shows the driver of the rescue truck jumping to safety at the last minute, the Lithuanian driver went down with the larger lorry and suffered several bone fractures.
Doctors say that despite the injuries the driver is in a stable condition.
