I am in agreement with you since it takes a lot of nerve to drive a truck.

They rescued the woman, which was good, but I wonder if they managed to salvage her truck from such a hairy predicament too, before it plunged into the drink.

I am sure that the female truck was scared since she was shaken up when the firefighters saved her from falling into the river.
