Video: Driver's amazing truck plunge escape

Lucky Escape For Driver as Lorry Falls Down Cliff in Norway

Towing an HGV across a very snowy, twisty mountain road with a steep drop at one side poses quite an obvious risk.

That's probably why the maker of this video decided to turn her camera on. Sure enough, what she suspected might happen actually did.

Thankfully, the lady holding the camera, driving along County Road 78 in Leirosen, Norway, didn't capture a poor tow truck driver's plummet into an early grave.

Concentrate on the tow truck cab rather than the toppling HGV and you'll see just how close the agile tow driver was to a serious tumble. They're some quick reflexes he has.
