BOSTON (CNN) – On a traffic camera, a truck appears to hit the snow, go over the barrier, and fall to the road below. Another traffic camera captures the truck falling off the upper deck of Interstate 93.

Unbelievably, the driver survived. Massachusetts firefighters had to cut him out of the truck.

Police have charged 33-year-old Vannak Sao with drunken driving. Sao says he wasn’t drunk, but he admits to having a little bit to drink before the Sunday morning crash.

Sao says he was tired after having worked the third-shift at his job and trying to earn extra money on the side by shoveling snow. Now, his driver’s license has been revoked.
