Gregory Meece was driving a rental car in north Dallas Thursday morning when the accident happened. Investigators say the driver of the semi was speeding and lost control. The truck then crossed three lanes of traffic, pushed an SUV over a concrete barrier and then flipped, landing on top of Meece's car.
A spokeswoman for the law firm where Meece works says he has a fractured disc in his neck, which will be fixed by surgery.
Video of the accident has been released. It can be seen in the video window above.
