MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - A pickup truck fell about 30 feet Thursday morning from an off-ramp on the Dolphin Expressway, but the driver miraculously walked away with only minor injuries.

The view from Sky 10 showed the mangled Ford F-150 lying in the grassy swale below the ledge where the truck went over near Northwest 137th Avenue.

Local 10 News reporter Parker Branton said the driver, who didn't want to be identified, had a few cuts on his face but was otherwise OK.

The badly damaged truck was towed away on the back of a flatbed truck. The driver was treated by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue at the scene and then hitched a ride with family and friends.

The driver of the pickup truck wasn't seriously injured in the fall.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash.
