COLLEGE STATION, TX (KRIS) - A Texas A&M veterinary professor is very fortunate to have escaped serious injury or even death yesterday when a cement truck tipped on its side and slammed into the professor's car in College Station.

And Dr. Guan Zhu, believe it or not had a dash camera that he had installed about a year ago in case he was ever involved in a crash.

Police say the driver of the cement truck ran the red light at Wellborn Road and Rock Prairie, and then tried to take evasive action to miss vehicles already in that intersection.

The truck crossed into oncoming traffic on Wellborn, tipped on its side, and slammed into Professor Zhu's minivan.

Fortunately Zhu was not seriously injured. And when he later looked at his dash cam video, he was amazed.

He says the airbags deployed and he only got a small cut on his leg. The dash cam was also still intact.

The driver of the cement truck also was not seriously injured, but police gave him a ticket. It took crews several hours to clean up spilled cement.
