A witness to the crash, Jeffrey Files, is a truck driver himself and rushed to help the driver of the overturned truck. 

"So much can happen with all that weight and all that momentum I was just hoping he didn't come out the window with how that truck was coming over." said Files.

Jonathon Verret, owner of Verret Motorsports right across the street, saw the whole thing and responded almost instantly. 

"His leg was pinned underneath the seat," says Verret "We were able to get inside the vehicle hold the door open get all the stuff out the way and got him to safety."

Both Files and Verret say they're grateful for the outcome because they know it could have been a lot worse.
