GREENSBURG, Ind. -- Police say a tractor-trailer went airborne before crashing and bursting into flames on Interstate 74 in Greensburg, Ind. Thursday.
The crash happened about 1:40 p.m. when a semi lost control and catapulted into the air.
Indiana State Police said the driver, 30-year-old Ryan Young, of Kentucky, swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle that drifted into his lane.
Police said Young ran up a hill and through a guardrail before ramping off the U.S. 421 interchange.
The impact of the crash tore off the truck's fuel tanks, causing the fire.
Young suffered some minor head injuries and his 7-year-old son, who was a passenger in the semi, had a few scratches. Both were taken to Decatur County Hospital for treatment.
The amazing video was captured by a dashcam in a nearby tractor-trailer. The accident occurs just before the 3:30 mark.
