The Monroeville student, Jude Doss, walked out of the car with a few scrapes and the driver of the truck, owned by Solid Foundations of Bellevue, wasn't injured.

"I went left of center then lost control," Doss said. "I'm all right. I'm very lucky."

The accident occurred just south of Ohio 113.

Doss was heading south on Peru Center when he went left of center and hit the front of a concrete pump truck. The impact pushed the car into a tree and demolished the front of the vehicle.

"Seat belts and air bags (saved his life)," said Huron River Joint Fire District Assistant Chief Doug Long.
