Man narrowly escapes injury after car gets dragged under moving semi-truck 

Indiana State Police(NEW YORK) -- A man was recovering Sunday after his vehicle became trapped underneath a moving semi-truck and was dragged along a highway in Indiana.

The crash -- involving a 1989 Ford Mustang and a semi-truck -- occurred shortly after noon on Interstate Highway 69 in Huntington County, according to Indiana State Police.

The driver of the Mustang lost control of his vehicle as he traveled alongside the semi-truck and became wedged underneath the trailer, state police said.

Unaware of the collision, the truck driver continued to drive for another half-mile, dragging the Mustang along with it, according to officials.

After the semi-truck came to a complete stop, the driver of the Mustang was able to exit the vehicle without assistance from authorities, police said. He refused medical treatment from paramedics at the scene.

The truck driver did not sustain injuries as a result of the crash.

Traffic subsequently came to a standstill on the highway for about 30 minutes until authorities were able to clear the crash site.

The cause of the collision is being attributed to a mechanical failure in the Mustang, according to state police.
