A 7,000-pound pipe rolled onto his minivan as he was driving on the highway in Orange County, Florida Saturday, Florida State Troopers said.

"Another foot to the left and he would be dead", Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes told People magazine, referring to Escobar.

The driver of the van, 36-year-old Jesus Armando Escobar, a father of three, went to a hospital with minor injuries.

Somehow, Escobar was able to walk away from the crash with only minor injuries.
