SPRINGFIELD, TN (WSMV) -

Emergency workers in Robertson County can't believe a man walked away from a terrible accident without being seriously hurt.

Police say Christopher Burnette's vehicle hit a guardrail on Tom Austin Highway in Springfield and then rolled multiple times, all the way down to the bottom of a 50-foot ravine just after midnight Wednesday.

Burnette, who had a broken arm but no serious injuries, was able to walk back up to the highway and wait for help.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating the wreck.
