This shocking footage shows incredible moment as a Salford HGV driver cheats death as a metal platform ploughs through his windscreen of his cab.

The 61 year old man had this to say after the death defying incident…

“I still can’t believe it happened – I thought I was dead. I had two seconds to make a decision and luckily it was the right one. I managed to put my foot on the brake, the clutch, keep my hand on the steering wheel and duck down. I don’t know how I did it.”
