Big Rig Spectacularly Fails To Avoid Tree In The Road

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

Carlisle River, Victoria, Australia: A commercial truck driver stopped to render assistance to a woman who’d damaged her car running over what looks like a downed tree trunk. While they’re chatting, another big rig comes barreling down on them and manages to hit the tree with every wheel.

Incredibly the loose-cannon oncoming truck manages to miss the camera rig but I’m not sure what happened to the little car on the other side of the road. You can hear the woman talking in the end, so she must have made it to safety before 80 tons of wheeled steel came down on here.

Definitely a code-brown for all involved. Wonder how well that white rig was running after “clearing the road.”

Hat tip to Warwick!
