Tow Truck Accident In Norway: Driver Jumps Out At Last Second (VIDEO)

Talk about good timing.

The Associated Press reports that a truck being towed down a snowy mountain in Norway began to slide, taking the tow truck along with it. But at the last second, before his vehicle plunged 200 feet, the tow truck driver jumped out.

The driver of the towed vehicle remained in his car as it fell down the cliff. He suffered broken bones, according to the AP, but the BBC reports that he survived and is now in stable condition.

According to Metro, the truck driver had to be towed because he got stuck in snow after he didn't put the right winter tires on his vehicle.

The accident happened in Nordland County, Norway.
