Driver crunched between two semis believes God saved his life

Driver crunched between two semis believes God saved his life

(ANS -- January 27, 2015) Every side of his pickup truck was completely smashed and compacted after Kaleb Whitby struck a semi from behind and was then hit by another semi in a highway pileup caused by morning fog and black ice.
Whitby literally walked away unscathed – with just two Band-Aids – after his Chevy Silverado was banged, spun, and ultimately came to rest in the vice-grip of parallel semi trucks. By God’s protective hand, he narrowly escaped death.
“I do believe in God. I do believe He protected me,” Kaleb told GodReports.com. “I don’t know if it was an army of angels that held those trucks apart, but I know it wasn’t my strength. I have faith that somebody was there to protect me.”
The 27-year-old Mesa, Washington, resident left Baker at 5:30 a.m. on January 17th headed for Council, Idaho to pick up goods for his farm. It was cold and driving conditions were dicey, but he hoped for incident-free travel.
Out of the fog emerged a semi jack-knifed across the lanes of I-84. Kaleb down-shifted and braked as he headed downhill, but it was to no avail. His front bumper clipped the back of the semi, and he swirled around so that his passenger side faced oncoming traffic.
Then he was startled by the headlights of another semi that emerged from the fog.
“I closed my eyes and said a prayer,” Kaleb said. Glass shattered and metal crunched like a soda can as every part of his pickup compacted between the two trucks.
