Couple, toddler miraculously survive crash with tractor-trailer caused by sun glare



CHARTIERS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A woman, man and toddler miraculously survived a crash caused by sun glare in Chartiers Township Wednesday.

Police said the driver couldn’t see in front of him as his car flew underneath a tractor-trailer.

Officials feared it was a fatal crash.

“When I first pulled up, there was a child seat in the snow and the top of the car was sheered off.  I naturally thought the worst,” said Sgt. Mike Filosi.

The couple told police they ducked and were knocked backwards.

The three were taken to Canonsburg Hospital for minor injuries.
