Actor James Woods happy to be alive after Colorado crash.

A tractor-trailer and sports utility vehicle sit stranded in a snowbank along Interstate 70 as a winter storm packing high winds and snow blankets the plains Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015, in Aurora, Colo. In a series of tweets, the actor said he was driving through Glenwood Canyon, a scenic canyon on the Colorado River, when another driver “doing 75+ in an ice storm spun out.” “I hit right wall to avoid him, spun 180, hit left wall sliding backwards going 60 mph,” he wrote. “Huge drop 100 feet into river below, but the guardrail held.Actor James Woods credited the vehicle’s “old tank” design with sparing him on Monday, after a crash in western Colorado — but the Green Party darling has long railed against production of the vehicle. “Now that Fiat has purchased Chrysler, it has the moral obligation to remedy the deadly fuel tank design in the Jeep Grand Cherokee before more innocent victims are burned today, not only in the United States, but also in Europe,” Nader said in a speech that year.A massive car crash along an icy Colorado highway nearly sent actor James Woods plunging off a cliff when he swerved to avoid the pileup, he revealed on Twitter.

The storm has closed much of Interstate 70, Colorado’s main east-west highway, because of blizzard conditions on the Eastern Plains as well as in northwest Kansas. Nader pointed to the fuel tank’s location behind the rear axle of the car below the bumper — a design similar to what led a recall of the infamous Ford Pinto — as dangerous to a driver’s safety. In 2013, Chrysler eventually recalled 1.5 million Jeep Grand Cherokees made between 1993 and 2004, but the company insisted that the vehicles were not defective. The star specified the area of the accident was the “treacherous” part of I-70 “going west,” before revealing that he had a “little concussion” but was “doing great.” Two semi trucks also struck each other on the same stretch of road Tuesday afternoon, but, according to the Post Independent, it was a separate accident.

Woods also used the social media site to express his gratitude toward the responding authorities, including the EMTs on site and the emergency-room doctors at Glenwood Springs hospital. “Every person I dealt with here in Colorado was just superb, professional and caring, he wrote, adding, “I tell you one thing, I admire the fire and police personnel and tow truck drivers out there in storms on dangerous roads.
