Man says he is ‘extremely lucky’ after surviving crash and fall from bridge


BOISE, ID (KTVB) — An Idaho man is counting his lucky stars after a series of car wrecks sent him plunging several feet off the Snake River Bridge and into the river.

Driving on this bridge is something Steven Arrasmith does all the time, without any problems. This time was different.

“A car came out of nowhere – he told the officers he was doing about 70,” said Arrasmith.

What happened next would put him on the edge of life and death. That car that came out of nowhere, hit the back of his Jeep which was parked on the side of the interstate.

“It shot into the cement barrier, then it shot back into me throwing me over the bridge into the Snake River,” said Arrasmith.

He plunged 50 feet before hitting the water.
