GOING, GOING...: Seconds after this, the truck and the tow truck attached to it slide off the road and tumble down a cliff.

Oslo, Norway - Police say a Lithuanian truck driver suffered broken bones but survived after his vehicle tumbled 60m down a snow-covered cliff in central Norway, dragging a tow truck with it.

Police spokesman Geir Riise said the truck didn't have the right tyres and was being towed up a serpentine mountain road in Leirfjord, some 700km north of Oslo, when it slid to the side and tipped over the guard rail.

TOW DRIVER JUMPED

A video taken by an occupant of a following car shows the trailer rolling down the side of the cliff on Sunday, pulling with it the rescue vehicle.

The tow driver jumped out just in time but the Lithuanian driver went down with the larger truck. He was taken to a hospital which said he had several bone fractures but was in a stable condition.
