Man chokes on raisins, crash saves his life

FALMOUTH, Mass. Oil tank repairman Richard Silvia was driving down a busy road when he popped some raisins into his mouth.

He immediately started choking and then passed out.

His truck went out of control and hit a car, then a van before he crashed into a hill.

When his airbag deployed, it struck him in the face, dislodging the raisin from his throat and reviving him.

Silvia was given a ticket for impeded driving.
