A driver is thanking his video game skills in helping him avoid a terrifying truck crash on a highway in Ontario, Canada.

Matthew Kirzsan had his dashboard camera rolling when a huge truck, carrying 30 tons of sand, plowed through the center divider and into his lane.

He managed to swerve and get out of the truck's path.

Kirzsan said years of playing video games gave him the split second reflexes he needed to avoid the accident.
