(DALLAS) -- It's known among firefighters as a "technical rescue" and it's like something out of an action-adventure movie.
The cab of an 18-wheeler was dangling over the side of the guardrail of a high-rise freeway ramp and the water tank it was hauling rested on top of a crushed car. Firefighters extended a ladder out over the truck and hoisted the driver through the passenger window to safety. Remarkably, the two people in the car were able to talk with paramedics, were rescued and taken to a local hospital.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
