Lorry driver walks away from dramatic crash


There are lucky escapes, very lucky escapes, and stupidly lucky how on earth did that happen escapes. This lorry driver in Russia definitely had one of the latter.


The driver had just been minding his own business when an oncoming HGV swerved into his path. While this would 99 times out of 100 end badly, this time it didn't.

Despite the crash causing all the damage, flying glass and metal you'd expect, the driver was not injured - as this dash cam footage shows.

In fact the lucky driver was somehow thrown from the vehicle, but still managed to land on his feet and walk away from the bizarre accident.

Michael Smeriglio had reportedly not had the gun for longer than a month when the bizarre (and painful) accident happened.

While cleaning his weapon, we men the gun, 18-year-old Smeriglio somehow pulled the trigger and fired a shot which went through his penis and left testicle.

Doctors say the bullet ended up getting lodged in his thigh, though Smeriglio is now recovering from the ordeal.

During their investigation of the incident, police reportedly found marijuana in the house … who would have thought that could be involved.

The hapless fox had somehow managed to get inside the office area, which was being refurbished, and then under the flooring.

Unfortunately, while he was able to get his head up into the hole - which he would have hoped   was a way out - he couldn't get back down and was jammed stuck.

RSPCA Animal Welfare Officer Kate Wright said: “When I arrived I was faced with a very odd sight. Here was this fox’s head poking out of a floor and he was so jammed he couldn’t move and I just had these big eyes staring at me.

But what he didn't consider what that his military-style "Ghillie suit" would also camouflage him as he stood in the right-hand lane of a highway.

As a result he was killed when he was knocked over by one car and hit by a second as he lay in the road.

Montana Highway Patrol say his motives of trying to get people to call in a Sasquatch sighting became apparent after they interviewed his friends.

It's not known whether alcohol was a factor … but we could have a guess.
