Each of the trucks had at least one other passenger.

"It is amazing that nobody was hurt,'' said Oregon State Police Sgt. Kyle Hove.

The semi that landed in the field had South Carolina license plates, and the one that was parked was from Kent, Washington.

Hove said that the driver of the semi that landed in the field was reported by a witness to be weaving before the crash.
