Al and Betty Perry, the couple in the truck, told CTV Edmonton News that following the strike the airbags deployed and cabin began filling with smoke. The couple tried to escape but with the truck's electric system fried, the doors and windows wouldn’t open from the locked position. Luckily, a passing police officer witnessed the scene and was able to smash out the window using his baton.
