Norway Lorry Veers Off Mountain, Takes Driver With It (VIDEO)

This is the moment a lorry got too close to the edge of a snow-covered mountain road in Norway.

The vehicle, being towed, began to slide and fell off the side off the hill, taking the lorry with it.

But the quick-thinking tow-tuck driver had a lucky escape, jumping out of his cab before it plunged over the edge. The lorry driver, however, stayed in the cab - but only suffered broken bones.

The remarkable incident ended up on YouTube, with the camera following the lorry and tow-truck off the edge to see it crash down the mountain.
