Truck driver very lucky after being found 2 days after truck wreck
An amazing story of survival, after a truck driver from this area, who was missing for 2 days, was found alive in the wreckage of his truck near Hope.
R-C-M-P say the wreckage was hidden from view since the big rig went off the road and down a steep embankment on Tuesday.
Yesterday it was spotted by Search and Rescue crews..
Rescuers say the cab of the truck was curled under the fully loaded trailer, which had to be stabilized from above while crews cut through the bottom of the cab to pull the injured man out through the floorboards.
He was said to be in good spirits, and transported by ambulance to hospital.
He suffered some broken bones and other injuries.
