WEST ALLIS, Wis. (WISN) – A driver is lucky to be alive after he skidded off an interchange ramp and plunged 70 feet to the highway below.

It was captured on Wisconsin Department of Transportation camera video on Interstate 94.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office told our ABC affiliate WISN a pickup truck traveling on I-94 when the driver skidded off the eastbound to the southbound ramp.

The driver lost control and went over the barrier wall.

He then plunged 70 feet down onto the westbound I-94 distress lane.

When deputies arrived, they found the pickup upright.

Two people were helping the driver, who was conscious and breathing. The sheriff’s office said he did not show signs of impairment.

He was taken to an area hospital to be evaluated.

I-94 westbound and all of the ramps were closed for several hours.
