Road worker nearly hit by out-of-control truck

A Knoxville, Tennessee worker was nearly hit by a speeding truck.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) – A Tennessee transportation worker is OK, thanks to some quick reflexes and smart thinking. His life-saving move was caught on camera.

The video was taken by a Knoxville police cruiser’s dashcam.

The worker was on the median of icy Interstate 40 when an out of control truck came straight for him from the side.

The worker moved just in time, and the vehicle crossed the median into oncoming traffic.

The worker was there to help clean up from another crash.

Police say they hope this video serves as a warning about the dangers of black ice.
