  1. Rescue the driver? all he had to do is get out and climb over the railing.( if he wasn't injured).

    1. yeah, I chose to leave that bit of reporter nonsense in the post. I'm pretty sure the driver merely stepped out of the rig, and walked up the incline and then sat down and called his family, then his boss. Then bought a lotto ticket

    2. He had kind of a lucky/unlucky combo package going on.
