Car plunges off highway bridge in semitruck wreck

CINCINNATI (CNN/WKRC) — Surveillance video of an accident on the Brent Spence Bridge in Cincinnati captures a truck swerving to avoid a car and ramming another car — dropping it into the lanes below.

It happened over the weekend.

Police say the 75-year-old driver who triggered the accident wasn’t paying attention.

Seven cars and a semitruck were involved in the crash that left cars smashed across the road and backed up traffic for hours.

Everyone made it out alive.
