A dashcam has captured a serious secondary truck crash that could have costed the driver his life on R66 just before Ulundi turn off from Vryheid side.

The video starts by recording a scene of a single side tipper truck crash as the recording truck follows behind other vehicles.

A traffic officer is directing vehicles to navigate past the scene when she stops the recording truck to allow vehicles from the other side to pass.

A few seconds after stopping, another side tipper truck, seemingly out of control, emerges from the opposite direction crashing into other vehicles before bursting into flames.

It collides with a side tipper truck going the opposite direction and another stationary truck.

A minibus taxi travelling escapes to safety upon seeing the truck.

The driver in the recording truck could probably be the luckiest man around, had he proceeded after the taxi or if the cop didn’t stop him, he would have collided head-on with the side tipper truck.
