A man trapped inside his smashed up car for an hour and a half is talking. 67-year-old Nyle Norwood is at home a week after his vehicle was crushed under the weight of a dump truck.

When he saw the truck rolling back at him, Norwood says he slammed his car into reverse, but realized he couldn't outrun the out of control truck. Norwood's car was smashed on impact. "And the steering wheel was bent across my legs, I couldn't move, I couldn't get out. I don't know how I survived, I really don't."

Norwood was finally pulled out of the car with four broken ribs and a punctured lung. Remarkably, his legs didn't suffer any serious injury.
