Michigan tow truck driver narrowly escapes car crash

State police in Michigan have posted shocking dash cam footage capturing a car smashing into a tow truck – and narrowly avoiding crushing its operator. The incident took place on Interstate 96 during snowy and icy conditions, which could explain why the offending vehicle lost control and skidded at high speed into the towing outfit.

The tow truck is shown loading a broken-down vehicle onto its bed, as the operator – seen here in the high-visibility jacket – supervises. From a sliproad on the right, a large saloon car careers into view and slams into the stricken car, halfway through the loading procedure.
