Tow truck driver narrowly dodges out-of-control car

A terrifying close call for a tow truck driver is caught on camera.

He was called for a crash on an icy highway entrance ramp in Detroit. He already had the car up on the truck's bed when another car suddenly came flying at him.

It crashed into the car on the tow truck, went airborne, and then landed on the ground, just missing the driver. He saw the car coming and managed to run out into the highway to avoid getting hit. He wasn't hurt.

Michigan State Police released dashcam video of the crash, and tweeted about giving officials a lane and slowing down in bad weather. 

Police cited the driver for going to fast for the icy conditions.
