Driver Rescued From Sysco Semi Dangling Over River
A Sysco semi-truck hung precariously from a Louisville bridge over the Ohio River on Friday, prompting a daring rescue.

The driver, Sydney Thomas, was rescued in a nerve-wracking operation by firefighter Bryce Carden, who described it as a "once-in-a-career" event.

New information has been revealed following an investigation into the event.

The incident began when a Chevrolet truck, driven by 33-year-old Trevor W. Branham, swerved to avoid a stalled car and struck Thomas's semi, sending it over the edge. Recently released dashcam footage captures Branham's reckless driving. He has been charged with four counts of wanton endangerment and one count of operating on a suspended license. Branham, now in a wheelchair due to the crash, pleaded not guilty.
