Woman survives tractor-trailer crash in Gwinnett

Posted: Updated:
SUWANEE, GA (CBS46) -

It was an unbelievable sight in Gwinnett County on Friday afternoon.

A tractor-trailer came unhitched, crossed the median and fell on the roof of a woman's van in Suwanee.

It happened on Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road at Old Peachtree Road.

The driver was trapped when crews arrived, but amazingly she was conscious and breathing. She also was able to crawl part of the way out of the vehicle.

The woman was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

All lanes of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road were closed for a while as wreckers worked to clear the scene.
