A South Valley man is lucky to be alive after authorities say he jumped in front of a semi truck on Highway 41 to impress his friends.
Kings County Sheriff's Deputies say the man and his friends were drinking on River Road off Highway 41 near Lemoore around 2 a.m. Thursday.
The man got drunk, jumped the fence onto the highway, and started darting into traffic.
According to deputies, when the man saw a semi coming, he yelled "watch this" and jumped directly in front of the truck.
Incredibly, the man survived with just a broken leg.
When investigators asked the man why he did it, he said, "I was drunk and acting stupid, trying to scare my friends."
