In the dashcam footage supplied to SA Trucker, the driver is seen travelling at 60km/h and the time is reading 05h43.

The attack happens while another truck was approaching from the opposite side making it difficulty for him to notice the attackers in time.

The truck crosses the road and ploughs through road side barriers.

It narrowly misses a standalone toilet at a house nearby before stopping a few metres from the house.
