Fortunately, no one was killed in the below incident. Unfortunately, however, two people were seriously injured.
Apparently, what happened was that a speeding dump truck slammed into the vehicle of an Ohio service worker that was parked on the side of the road. Following the crash, a massive fireball billowed up and over the side of the highway.
Just the News, reporting on the Akron-area crash, reports that “An official with ODOT told media that it was “nothing short of a miracle” that the worker survived the incident.”
Watch the fireball here:

Take this video as a reminder that the roads are dangerous. Summer is fast-approaching, if not already here for you. Many of us drive more during the summer, taking road trips to bodies of water, heading to the mountains for a hike, or otherwise just spending our free time going somewhere.
Danger is never more than a second away on the road. Someone could fall asleep and crash, be texting and crash, lose control of their car while speeding, or just be a bad driver.
In short, the roads are seriously dangerous, particularly when more people are on them. So all of y’all be careful out there!
