Woman escapes with only minor injuries after semitrailer crumples car
A woman managed to suffer only minor injuries after a semitrailer crushed her car on a highway in Washington state on Tuesday morning, the Seattle Times reported.
The Washington State Patrol said the woman was driving a 2015 Nissan Altima, which was sandwiched between two big rigs traveling on Interstate 5 in Mount Vernon.
The semi behind the passenger car was trailing it too closely, and when the vehicles had to slow down, the driver did not stop in time and slammed into the back of the woman’s car. The impact sent the Nissan into the other semi, then it folded in half. The other semitrailer came to a rest on top of the car, according to troopers.
