Terrifying images of the moment that a trailer on the sides wiped a drawn ute on the side of a highway, has been captured on the camera.
Nathan Pereira and his two students had their ute and trailer, used for his air conditioning and refrigerator repair company, pulled over the shoulder of the M7 at Rooty Hill on Wednesday morning.
While the three were preparing to change a flat tire, the trailer's suspension went by – sweeping past the ute and flying debris to the highway.

& # 39; Is everything okay? & # 39; a voice can be heard in the video.
& # 39; What the bastard, & # 39; someone else calls.
& # 39; Oh my god & # 39 ;, a third person can be heard.
& # 39; The impact was just so horrible, even when I only heard it on the camera, I got shivers down my back & # 39 ;, Nathan Pereira said. Nine news.
& # 39; Two minutes earlier it would have caught me to get out of the vehicle or two minutes later it would have been when we were replacing the tire, & # 39; he said.
One of his students, Eliza Pereira, 17, was brought into an ambulance with bruises and broken ribs.

& # 39; It just threw me back into the barrier of the roadway. My whole body is pretty sore, but I'm lucky to walk, & said Eliza Pereira.
His other student, Jayden Borg, says that a ladder from the ute hit him in the mouth and caused him nerve damage.
The truck that swept alongside stopped further along the highway.
The team of professionals is now recovering before they go back to work.
Nathan says that the next time he is in the same situation, he would drive as far as possible to the side of the road and wait for help from an emergency vehicle.
