SHELBY, OH - A runaway juvenile from Shelby is lucky to be alive after riding 50 miles in between a semi truck's cab and its trailer.

He apparently hopped on the truck in Louisville, Kentucky, according to authorities.

Eventually, he was spotted by an inspector at a weigh station, who then told an Indiana State Police Trooper.

The inspector, Mike Buckley, stated, "He chased the truck down the ramp, got the truck stopped at the end of the ramp, and the kid was gone. So we started searching the truck, and he had actually climbed under the truck."

He was then taken to a juvenile center and authorities contacted his parents.
