A driver from Georgia is lucky that he is still alive after a frightening collision with a lumberjack wagon that dragged its SUV from front to back through dozens of felled trees.
Cooling photos posted on Facebook by the Whitfield County fire brigade on October 11 show a black Nissan Xterra from 2003 pierced by a bundle of logs.
According to officials, the driver of the SUV stooped to pick up a cup of coffee he had dropped when he hit the back of the truck carrying logs.
Final Destination Plot: A man who stormed this 2003 Nissan Xterra in Georgia on October 11, crashed into a logging truck, causing dozens of trees to pierce his SUV
No fewer than 40 trees felled from front to rear, from the windscreen to the rear window
The crash, reminiscent of a storyline from a horror film with a final destination, took place along the Cleveland Highway in Cohutta.
Because the Nissan driver was not sitting upright at the time of the collision, his head ended in a narrow gap between the tribes, probably saving his life.
& # 39; It was as if it was made almost exclusively for his head, & # 39; said Whitfield County Fire Chief Edward O & Brien CNN.
Firefighters called on the spot had to use chainsaws to cut 40 logs of different thickness to clear the path to the trapped driver.
After completing that task, it took the rescuers another 10-15 minutes to free the man from his vehicle, totally in the crash.
A photo of the interior of the Nissan, taken after the driver's rescue, shows the logs that pierce the windshield and seats and almost completely fill the space in the SUV from the dashboard to the rear seat.
The driver was said to have bent to pick up a cup of coffee just before the collision; because he was not standing upright, his head landed in an opening between the tribes
Firefighters had to use chainsaws to make their way through the tribes and free the victim
Officials said the motorist escaped with only minor injuries, but Facebook commentators who claimed to be aware of the situation said the victim should be taken off the scene and seven hours spent on surgery.
His name has not been made public and there have been no updates about his condition.
It is unclear whether the police intend to file charges related to the accident.
