For most of the 100 or so people involved in Saturday's massive highway accident in Eastern Oregon, the 26-car pileup was surely a harrowing ordeal, but one man found a cute new place amidst all the chaos, wedged safely between two big rigs.
After his four-door pickup was rendered a zero-door pancake by two semi-trucks, Kaleb Whitby didn't have much choice but to wait for help, which finally came (as it so often does these days) with a request for pics.
Truck driver Sergi Karplyuk's semi was halted by the two trucks that pinned Whitby. Karplyuk got out to survey the scene and discovered Whitby's mangled vehicle jammed in between. The trucker confirmed that Whitby, astonishingly, was unharmed. He asked if he could snap a picture of Whitby, capturing the terrifying image you see above. Then he helped Whitby escape the wreck, and they went to work helping others caught in the pileup.

Sadly, it hasn't all been good news for Whitby.
