Escobar and Wharton only received minor injuries.

The pipe caused heavy damage to the van, smashing the windshield, roof, driver's door, and passenger door behind the driver.

Antonio Santiago Wharton, 33, of Kissimmee, was driving a Mack truck loaded down with scrap metal at about 7:35 a.m. Saturday.

"Another foot to the left and he would be dead", Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes told People magazine, referring to Escobar.

A large piece of metal fell off the overpass and onto a 2003 Pontiac Van below that was on an exit ramp from Interstate 4. But the driver, 36-year-old Jesus Armando Escobar of Orlando, miraculously survived and suffered only minor injuries.

"I've seen crushed cars before but nothing in this kind of circumstance, where they were up on an upper bridge, and it rolled out of the container and crushed a vehicle. It is miraculous he didn't get more than a scratch on his face".

The semi driver was ticketed for careless driving.
