TANKS FOR THAT: Lucky Trucker’s Miracle Escape When Tanker Hits Him

This is the moment a lucky trucker is hurled through the air after being hit by a tanker and gets up to walk away unharmed.

Astonishing CCTV footage of the smash shows the trucker apparently shooting a set of traffic lights in Corum in the Turkish capital Ankara on 5th August.

As he moved forward into the crossroads he was hit at high speed by a tanker on the main road.

In the miraculous footage, the truck cab disintegrates sending the driver sailing across the road.

As he lands he rolls and only comes to a halt when he hits a kerb.

Amazingly, he gets up apparently unscathed and can be seen smoothing down his T-shirt although local media reported he was treated for injuries.
