Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A truck driver said he was lucky to be alive after an incredible crash Saturday morning on Interstate 65.  Barry Burns was heading down I-65 South near the Trinity Lane exit when he said another driver moved in front of him, causing him to crash.

Burns said the car locked it's brakes.  "I thought, uh-oh, what am I going to do.  So, I hit my brakes and it just came around," Burns said.  "When it came around it's really the last thing I remember until I hit the bottom, because it just slid around.  I didn't know I went off a big bank like this."

The tractor trailer went over the side of a concrete wall and down several feet.  Incredibly no one was hurt.  Burns said he was almost home when the crash happened.
