Vine Video Captures Moment Truck Launches Off Highway

Vine Video Captures Moment Truck Launches Off Highway

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Aug 20, 2013

A woman's video shows the moment a truck crashed through a guardrail and down a ravine on Interstate 96 last week.

Alex Stack posted the video on Vine Friday. The highway was shut down for a few hours late Friday afternoon after a 58-year-old man from Kentwood lost control and crashed between the Pennsylvania exit and US 127 interchange.

The Ingham County Sheriff's office says Mark Moerland was pulling a utility trailer with a riding lawn mower when he left the highway, drove through the median and hit an embankment and guardrail before launching into the Sycamore Creek.

Despite the unbelievable video Stack captured, Moerland is expected to recover from his injuries.
