Tennessee truck driver narrowly avoids head-on collision

It was either crash into a tree or a silver Chevy saloon

A PICK-UP truck driver in America has suffered minor injuries after crashing into a tree to avoid an oncoming car.

In the dash cam footage, Jacob Ketterer is seen making the evasive manoeuvre as a Chevrolet Impala saloon comes straight at him on the wrong side of the road.

Though a potentially more dangerous head-on collision was avoided, the Tennessean injured his wrists in the impact with the tree. It’s claimed that the silver Chevrolet driver didn’t stop to assist Mr Ketterer, and instead carried on down the road.

Chattanooga Police are currently on the lookout for the Impala driver, according to local news reports.
