This eye-watering near-miss was an incredible escape for everyone

Their guardian angels were doing some heavy lifting.

TWO POLICE OFFICERS were attending a crash scene in Johnson County, Iowa last week when they had the escape of their lives.

Both officers were uninjured. Incredibly, the driver of the flying pickup truck – who had been rear-ended by a lorry which failed to slow down for the crash – escaped with only a cut forehead.

He told KWQC:

Yeah, now you know what a  miracle feels like. I heard a crunch, and suddenly I was flying through the air.

According to KWWL, the lorry driver was also uninjured but was cited for failure to maintain control.
