CCTV footage of the fatal runaway truck crash on the R40 next to the Riverside Mall in Nelspruit has emerged on social media.

A runaway articulated truck transporting poles ploughed into several cars before bursting into flames on 30 July 2021.

The truck driver and his passenger were sadly killed and five other people injured in the horrific crash.

ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived to find the smouldering truck on the side of the road.

Several light motor vehicles were found scattered in the middle of the road.

On closer inspection, medics found two people, believed to be the driver and his assistant, in the burnt out truck wreckage.

Unfortunately, both had already succumbed to their numerous burn wounds.

Nothing could be done, and they were declared dead.

One patient was found in a critical condition, while four others had sustained moderate injuries.

The patients were treated and provided advanced life support before being transported to nearby hospitals for urgent care.

The cause of the accident is not known but authorities attended the scene to investigate the crash.
