|Major Dmitry Shpak,|
Nizhnevartovsk Disctrict Road Police
It was about 85 kilometres for them to drive, when a heavy truck with a full load of crushed stone driving in the opposite direction, lost control and appeared on their lane ahead.
Major Dmitry Shpak (a father of two), who drove the accompanying road police car, did not turn aside and hit the heavy truck so that it fell on its side and stopped.
Nobody suffered in the accident, except for the courageous major, whose chances were, frankly speaking, faint. Doctors say he was lucky to be lower than 180cm/6ft (taller people have no chances in such accidents, they say), so he survived, though got an open craniocerebral trauma, a split collarbone and broken ribs.
