Nissan Altima Driver Survives Horrific Crash

As much as we talk about model safety these days, there are sometimes accidents where even the strongest car in the world couldn't save the lives of its occupants. And then, there are those miracles that happen, like this terrible, violent accident earlier this week in Washington State. The 46-year-old woman behind the wheel of the crushed Nissan Altima you see here not only survived, she reportedly suffered only minor injuries.

The photo, shared by Washington State Police Officer Rocky Oliphan, makes it hard to imagine anyone could have survived in the middle of such carnage.

The accident, which occurred on the bridge over the Skagit River in Mount Vernon, north of Seattle, Washington, involved a semi-truck and what was a 2015 Nissan Altima. The truck struck the car from behind and then climbed on top of it.

And the accident was unimaginably brutal. Washington State Patrolmen told the Seattle Times that the woman's car was following a semi-truck that slowed down in front of her. She did the same, but it was the truck following her that crashed into her car. It pushed her into the back of the first truck, folding the back of the car in on itself. And then the guilty semi-truck landed on top of the smashed Altima.
