(WHAS11) --  A video out of Akron, Ohio shows a runaway semi overturning inches away from a gas pump and miraculously, no one was seriously hurt.

In the video, you can see the semi truck making a left turn and traveling between two vehicles before overturning next to the gas pump. 

After manager Mary Lewis shut off the gas pump valve, Rahif Faris and others rushed to help the semi truck driver and his passenger.

Amazingly, no one was seriously hurt.

The driver says his brakes failed when his load shifted as he tried to make a turn.
