MIAMI -- The Florida Highway Patrol has released footage of the moment a garbage truck fell 100 feet off the side of I-95.

The incident happened on Presidents Day. Kaseem Smith has driving a City of Miami garbage truck when he lost control of the vehicle.

"In the video, you see him hitting the left guardrail twice and then overreacting and going off I-95. It's a miracle that he survived," said Trooper Joe Sanchez./

Smith was hospitalized, but has since been released.
