It was as much a miracle as it was a close call Thursday near the south Louisiana town of Rayne, when a tractor-trailer driver lost control of his truck and narrowly missed at least a dozen other vehicles. The driver of the semi, coming of Interstate 10, swerved off the pavement, drove down an embankment, and crossed several lanes of traffic before coming to a stop on the other side of the exit intersection. And amazingly without as much a nicking another motorist.

Here's a description of the near miss from the Rayne Police Department's Facebook page:

"On March 17, 2022, at approximately 11:30 am, the Rayne Police Department responded to a single vehicle accident involving a 2011 KW tractor and trailer. The vehicle was traveling east on Interstate 10 when for unknown reasons it left the roadway, drove down an embankment, crossed The Boulevard and came to rest on private property. The tractor caught fire and the Rayne Volunteer Fire Department was called to the scene to extinguish the blaze. The driver of the tractor sustained minor injuries. The accident is still under investigation."
