LUBBOCK, TX — A Texas TV station caught a terrifying moment involving a semi-truck on camera.

A KCBD photographer was at the scene for another accident when the 18-wheeler came barreling in from the fog.

The video is terrifying, and the photographer who watched the scene unfold said that he has never seen anything like it in his life.

The 18-wheeler left the roadway and hit the trooper that was responding to the other accident.

It also pinned a man in his truck.

The trooper is going to be okay, and the man was freed by the jaws of life. The accident happened on Friday in Lubbock.

Always use low beam headlights when driving in the fog.
