A Lufkin man is lucky to be alive after his Mustang was run over by an 18-wheeler Wednesday afternoon. According to police, John Magee pulled his Mustang onto Highway 59 south from College Drive, and as he merged into traffic, his car crashed into the side of a semi going the same direction.
"It appears the driver of the Mustang may have been talking on a cell phone. At this point we're still unsure who ran the light. But we do know the Mustang clipped the rear tractor tire on the passenger side, and it appears the trailer ran over the top of the Mustang." said officer Chris Carroll.
