Semi-truck driver almost decapitated

Archives, Trucking Accidents

A semi-incident on State Road 82 in Lee County almost left the driver decapitated.  A semi-truck driver, was caught in a wire used by crews in a construction area.  The wire sliced through the top of the truck’s cab, causing the truck driver to duck down; he felt the wire graze the top of his head.

The truck driver was on his way to pick up cargo in Lehigh and deliver it to Miami.  He is counting his blessings that he was able to walk away – head intact.  The incident did cause over 3,800 customers to be without power for about an hour.

The truck driver is a very lucky man.
