A 27-year-old Oregon man survived being crushed between two big rigs in a nightmare pile-up on an icy freeway Saturday morning.
His Chevy Silverado was completely wrecked after the two semi-trucks smashed into each other- with him in the middle. The 50-vehicle pile-up left 18-wheelers sprawled across the icy freeway.
The lucky guy says he swerved to avoid a jack-knifed truck - only to get crushed by another out of control big rig. The man managed to cut himself free of his seatbelt, and move the steering column from his leg.
He then shouted for help – and was rescued by the driver who drove the second truck in the crash.

The 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibited the sale or transportation of alcoholic beverages, was ratified.
Basically, here’s what the 18th Amendment reads:
An Act to prohibit intoxicating beverages, and to regulate the manufacture, production, use, and sale of high-proof spirits for other than beverage purposes, and to ensure an ample supply of alcohol and promote its use in scientific research and in the development of fuel, dye, and other lawful industries
It was later repealed by the 21st Amendment…nearly 14 years later!
