How Car Crash Saved A Trucker's Life

Usually, car crashes are bad for one's health - but as you can see in this peculiar case, the crash itself was a lifesaver for a Pennsylvania trucker:

Richard M. Paylor, 55, Fairless Hills, Bucks County, told city police he was driving the rig west about 9 when he started to choke on a piece of apple and blacked out, investigators said. The next thing he knew, his truck had smashed through the concrete barrier near Lancaster Avenue, he told police.

"This accident saved his life," police Lt. Madison Winchester said. "Witnesses said that he was slumped over the wheel before the truck crashed. It appears that the apple chunk was dislodged when he hit the concrete barrier and his body hit the steering wheel."
