A white MAN TGS side-tipper truck was captured on CCTV missing weighbridge rails, resulting in a spine-tingling flip onto its right side and causing extensive destruction to the weighbridge in Rustenburg.
The exact location of the incident remains unknown.
In the gripping footage, the truck can be seen attempting to enter the weighbridge; however, upon closer examination, a perilous situation becomes evident.
Only the left-hand side wheels of the massive vehicle are securely positioned on the scale, while the right-hand side presents a starkly contrasting scenario.
In this instance, only the inner wheels of the first trailer are resting on the scale, leaving the outer wheels dangerously suspended.
As the second trailer enters the scale, a heart-stopping moment unfolds as both right wheels on both axles miss the intended mark, causing the entire trailer to teeter precariously onto its side.
In a truly astonishing turn of events, the trailer begins to tip over, dragging the front trailer along with it and ultimately causing the entire combination to topple onto its right side.
The full extent of the damage sustained by the weighbridge is yet to be assessed.
As of now, it remains unknown whether the driver suffered any injuries during this jaw-dropping ordeal.
