FALMOUTH — Most people won’t be thankful to have been in a car accident, but a Massachusetts man might not be alive today if he hadn’t crashed his truck.
Oil tank repairman Richard Silvia was driving down a busy road when he popped some raisins into his mouth.
He immediately started choking and then passed out.
His truck went out of control and hit a car, then a van before he crashed into a hill.
When his airbag deployed, it struck him in the face, dislodging the raisin from his throat and reviving him.
Silvia was given a ticket for impeded driving.
