MIAMI, FLORIDA  (WSVN) – The Florida Highway Patrol has released footage of the moment a garbage truck fell from Interstate 95, last month.

The footage from the Feb. 15 accident shows the driver, Kaseem Smith, driving a City of Miami garbage truck on I-95 near Seventh Street. Police said Smith then lost control and fell 100 feet off of the highway into José Martí Park.

Troopers said it’s a miracle that no lives were lost. “In the video, you see him hitting the left guardrail twice, and then overreacting and going off I-95,” said Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joe Sanchez. “It’s a miracle that he survived.”
