We now have a first-person dramatic look at the Clark Memorial Bridge crash that left a semi-truck driver hanging over the Ohio River on March 1. Video from inside and outside the truck's cab was played in court Wednesday morning as the man charged in the crash appeared in court. The dashcam video shows 33-year-old Trevor Branham's pickup truck swerving out of his lane to avoid hitting an electric vehicle that stalled on the bridge. He then crashed into a Sysco semi-truck, driven by 26-year-old Sydney Thomas. As Thomas tried to avoid hitting other vehicles, her semi plows through the bridge's railing and she is left hanging nearly 100 feet above the Ohio River for about 45 minutes. Following the crash, Louisville firefighters conducted a daring rescue to get Thomas out of the semi-truck's cab.
