    Was someone steering the semi? If not, they probably should have been as this might not have happened. If so, I`m sure they are just at the bottom having tea so by all means continue watching and talking about it.

    a) Oddly calm reaction from the camera person
    b) Surprisingly well-filmed

    Did you know China is a socialist country? It`s also the wealthiest country on the planet. They have a progressive income tax rate that starts at 3% and works all the way up to 45%. Seems to me that might be something to emulate.

    Norway here, the driver of the big truck survived the fall, but with serious injuries but is in stable and recovering condition now.
    @OldOlle, roads are sloping towards the mountain here, not properly cleared snow and ice are what caused the outward sloping.
    btw the form of socialism we have here seems to function better than whatever you guys call your system.

    @ollie&crakr: yeah well 100 % of the people in this video have jobs and don`t live in a 10 ft. trailer, in some whiskey tango cemetery of dreams where the ground water is filled with poisonous led from the endless landscape of abandoned factory- buildings surrounding this narrowed gene pool that calls it self a "community" - that could best be describes as a mockery to mankind :-p

    Hello OldOllie,
    i propose you stay where you are.
    We will continue doing fine over here.
    By the way, i`m sure the truck driver will be treated in an hospital at almost no cost for him, his wage will be continuing to be paid...
    HOWEVER, unfortunately, we do not have the freedom to choose for a medical plan from some private corporation, which might vanish at any moment.....
    Life is hard in a socialist, communist....country.
    Have a nice day, Ollie and greetings from Luxemburg

    @madest: China is the "wealthiest country on the planet" CHINA!?!
    Wiki Says: NO!
    You`ve gone from utterly stupid, to unbelievably stupid!
    And the main question is: is your shirt tucked in? Hummm @madest? Is it?

    USA: listed 15, 10 or 12th in the world on the 3 indexes Wiki shows.
    China: 91, 98 and 99th.

    Yeah, there`s TONS of people trying to move from Euroe and America TO China, isn`t there...

    well- I would far rather move to Norway, or most northern european countries. Good healthcare, decent welfare, high standard of living. Move to the U.S- not now- once it was a progressive nation but is rapidly becoming as backward as it can. Apologies to those US citizens who are not Tea party retards....

    Back to the video:

    Thanks @bjarki! It`s good to hear he`s (kind of) OK.

    I`m so glad to live where it`s FLAT! There`s nothing remotely like a mountain for... 900 miles?

    HEY MADEST!
    How quiet you get when confronted by the truth. Like all bullies, you`re a coward at heart.
    That you are an IAB "Mod" is disgraceful. Sickening even.

    Seems to me that might be something to emulate.
    Yeah @madest, YOU goto China and leave us all alone! Please!

    Why was the tow truck hauling the semi with a cable? Shouldn`t you either lift the front end with the tow boom or else use a towing bar?

    Wait. They tax their poor at 3%. If you`re in the lower 50th percentile in America, you don`t pay any federal tax. In fact much of the time the IRS pays you.

    @carmium the tow truck was only helping the big truck to get up the hill, the big truck had summer tires and only 1 chain, so he was just spinning. on top of that he was lithuanian, didnt speak english of norwiegian and had poor knowledge how to drive in such condisions.

    he was also very lucky and survived without any broken bones, they found him 50 meters down (about 165 feet)

    I just have to translate what that dude says, mostly because it`s hilarious. I can be wrong, his voice is kinda weird, and he has a northern dialect, but anyway:
    "Oh, Hell, it`s so boring here!"
    "oh, hell, ... Down to earth!"
    And i mean that last one as the saying, like "he`s really down to earth", not literally.
    Such a weird reaction, i`m laughing so hard right now!

    @JimmyHex: That`s not what he says. He says: "ka i haelvete som skjedde! I haelvete gjorn` her?!"

    ("What the hell happened?! What the hell did he do?!")

    Yeah, it`s a Lithuanian truck driver - a lot of East- European truck cross into the border, carrying goods, far too under- equipped and inexperienced to drive under these conditions.

    As dramatic as this video is, sadly this is everyday situation in Norway. Foreign drivers getting into trouble :p

    Thanks @Student_Law and @rubbitin for filling us in on this story! Now that we have some info, it all makes sense.

    @Genocyde: lolz! Yes, Loki was definitly involved.
