Driver plungnes 70 feet off overpass ramp

After driving off an interchange ramp in Milwaukee and tumbling 70 feet onto the highway below, a motorist is lucky to be alive.

The accident occurred on I-94 outside Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday morning at the Zoo Interchange.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation had a camera on hand when the accident occurred.

The driver of the pickup truck was driving eastbound on I-94 when he abruptly slipped off the eastbound ramp.

The truck collided into a snowdrift on the right shoulder of the road.

The motorist lost control and sailed up and over the barrier wall, tumbling 70 feet to the roadway below but landed upright.

Until sheriff’s deputies came, two people assisted the motorist.

The motorist was still alive and breathing after the incident, according to Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

According to the sheriff’s office, the motorist did not appear to be intoxicated.

He was transferred to a local hospital for treatment.

Milwaukee County has stated that it is working as soon as possible to clear snow off the sides of roadways in order to prevent accidents like this.

In an exclusive interview with ABC, the Milwaukee motorist who miraculously survived a 70-foot fall from an ice highway bridge is coming up.

Just a few days ago, traffic cameras in Milwaukee filmed a vehicle tumbling over a freeway bridge. The automobile plunged 70 feet to the road below, evading any oncoming traffic. It happened at the Zoo Interchange on I-94.

Richard Lee Oliver, the truck driver, and his fiancee, Candice Haid, came out for the first time about the tragedy from his hospital bed on Thursday.

Oliver said that immediately his vehicle struck the snow, he lost all control.
