Family Rescued From Car Dangling Off Freeway Bridge
A mother and her two children were in their car when it was clipped from behind by a big-rig gravel truck and left dangling over the side of an overpass on the 101 Freeway south of Buellton, Calif.
The truck that hit the BMW went over the side and plunged into a creek bed, killing the driver.
The rescue effort was aided by a group of Navy Seabees from Port Hueneme who were stuck in southbound traffic near the accident.
They were able to use a forklift they were transporting to help prevent the BMW from sliding off the bridge.
