Forty-one-year-old,Karl Scisinger, of Sandusky is lucky to be alive.

The truck driver wrecked his semi into a metal pole at the intersection of Ohio 314 and Ohio 97 in Mansfield on Thursday afternoon, holding up traffic in the area for a number of hours. Sergeant Flanagan with the State Highway Patrol says Scisinger was headed south-bound on OH 314 when he rear-ended,  18-ear-old Mansfield resident Benjamin Schenberger's Pontiac Grand-Am, forcing him to drive off the road into a nearby ditch.

Schenberger would be taken to a Galion hospital by a family member where he was treated for a concussion, while Scisinger was transported to Med Central in Mansfield for nothing more than minor injuries.

Sergeant Flanagan considers this to be somewhat of a miracle, as a load of extremely heavy metal pipes Scisinger was transporting on his trailer crashed through the cab of the truck upon impact with the pole, narrowly missing a fatal blow to his head and body by a mere few inches.

Scisinger would however, be cited for Assured Clear Distance Ahead.
