The driver of a Dodge Caliber somehow managed to survive after being involved in a terrible accident on I-81 in Smyth County, Virginia.

The crash occurred last Saturday morning when Jacob Henley hit a tractor-trailer before crossing the median and hitting the end of a guardrail. The guardrail literally ripped off the driver side headrest and even pierced through the rear window. Ironically, not wearing a seatbelt is what probably saved Jacob's life as after crashing into the tractor-trailer he was thrown to the passenger seat, thus avoiding the incoming guardrail.

He was able to get out of the car with just a few minor injuries and now he is facing several charges for reckless driving with a revoked license and expired tags. In addition, he also wasn't able to provide insurance proof and was driving without the seatbelt fastened.
