WSB TV reports on a woman whose car had a dump truck land on top of the vehicle. Police are investigating a 5-vehicle crash that involved a dump truck landing on top of another vehicle before bursting into flames. The crash happened at West Marietta Street and Joseph E. Lowery Blvd.
The dump truck reportedly went off an embankment, crashed through a retaining wall, then landed on top of a woman’s car. The truck then caught fire.
Katrina Thomas, the driver of the vehicle, recalls, “I heard a boom and saw the truck fly over and then it landed on my car.”
In the moments before the truck landed on her car, the truck had been hit by another vehicle trying to avoid a collision that occurred down the street. The truck driver said that he had tried to stop, but was unable to do so.
The diesel fuel tank caught fire after the accident, which quickly spread to the cab of the truck. Miraculously, neither the driver of the truck nor the woman in the car were seriously injured. Authorities are currently working to determine who was at fault in the accident.
