Police in Cleveland are "dumbfounded" after a Wednesday morning wreck on APD 40.
A car crashed into the side of an 18 wheeler and no one was seriously hurt.
"I seen it coming, I didn't want it to chop my head off," said Brandon Evans, who was on his way to work.
"I seen the truck pull out in front of me and I was going to go around the front of him and there wasn't no room," said Evans, "I couldn't go around the rear either so I hit it right in the center."
Evans' gold Honda Accord was sliced in half and turned into a convertible.
"There wasn't nothing I could do except get down real low," said Evans, who had bruises and blood on his face and arms.
In a matter of seconds, Evans slammed on his brakes and tried to slide down in his seat, but the seat belt got in the way.
"So I had to flick it off in order to get down as low as I could," said Evans.
"Hoping I was going to make it through it," said Evans, recounting what he was thinking before impact, "and by the grace of God I did."
Evans climbed out of what was left of the driver side window with only minor scrapes and bruises.
"It's dumbfounding if you look at the vehicle and really wonder how this guy actually escaped alive," said Evie West with the Cleveland Police department.
She says they work similar wrecks every day, but rarely see this result.
"It was actually a miracle because we see these things a lot and they don't usually survive," said West.
"I'm thankful, praise the Lord that I'm here," said Evans.
The truck driver declined to talk on camera, but does say he's been driving for 30 years and never had an accident like this before. He also says he's thankful no one was seriously hurt.
Traffic on APD 40 West was blocked for several hours. It has since reopened.
