Horrific Crash Sees Jeep Hit Semi Head-On, Everyone Survived

An 18-year old teen was seriously injured last week in New Hampshire, when his Jeep impacted an oncoming semi truck that immediately burst into flames.

The Jeep hit the truck’s fuel tank, which is what sparked the massive fire that engulfed both vehicles. Thankfully, a father son duo, Marc and John Cramer jumped to the teen’s rescue from within the dashcam vehicle, and kept him alive until paramedics arrived, reports WHDH.

Meanwhile, the driver of the truck, 66-year old Jean Morency was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, unlike the teen, Samuel Lachance, who was airlifted to Mass. General Hospital in Boston, according to Boston 25 News.

“He is somewhat alert. He is able to recognize people. His burns are healing unbelievably well. So he’s coming along, but he does have a pretty traumatic brain injury,” explained his mother, Jessica Lachance, who stated that Samuel doesn’t have any memory of the crash or what might have caused him to veer into oncoming traffic – something the police are still investigating.

In the end, the teen was lucky to have the Cramers by his side, not to mention a sturdy vehicle to absorb the force of the impact. Had he been driving a small passenger car, his chances of survival would have probably been lessened.

“He’s not a kid who ever had a speeding ticket. He doesn’t text and drive. He’s not a kid. He’s a very responsible guy,” added his mother.

Thus far, Samuel has been able to answer questions such as “What’s your favorite sports team?” – he’s a diehard Bruins fan.

    Sorry mum, looks like texting and driving on initial inspection, no brake lights or attempt to swerve back

    • Craig

      Or attempted suicide.

      • DMax

        Yeah this seems to be the case. He didn’t slowly drifted off into the truck’s way as if he was texting, he swerved right into it.

        • alexxx

          Because this is the best way to commit suicide?!
          Don’t think so.

          • DMax

            I mean, he’s only 18, gotta go out with a bang! Lol but yeah, a head on collision with a semi truck is sure fire way to suicide, he’s lucky? he survived. Probably was a spontaneous decision too.

    maybe he had a medical emergency or fell asleep at the wheel. Yes he could have been texting and driving but it could have been any number of other things too. Lots of hateful know-it-all negative people here.

  • nastinupe

    No brake lights, he didn’t even see this coming. He had to have been distracted. I hope that everyone is ok.

  • Blade t

    I’m shocked he survived that ,looks like he swerved right into the truck on purpose on the video. .

  • S T

    Ouch! Impressed the jeep held together that well. Looks like a pretty serious hit to the cam car too. Looks like the semi driver tried his best to get out of the way.

  • ace_9

    I’m surprised nobody assumes he wasn’t braking because that does not work on slippery conditions and he was already sliding. It is quite obvious. I would not brake either.

  • Paul

    Wow that was incredible and he survived too.

  • SteersUright

    That fireball was unbelievable. Made this seem less real-life and more Hollywood. Thank goodness everyone made it out ok.

  • mm ds


    that’s it ?

  • mm ds


    but of he didn’t do the right thing on it well………..

    what do you think ? guess to say he fell into death or what?

  • Eric

    Given that Jeep Wranglers perform abhorrently bed on crash tests, I’d say he would have had a better chance in almost anything else.
