“Great ride by an old helmsman in the flatbed, who would have been invisible until the last second,” commented one user.
“Great job on the oncoming truck to avoid it,” agreed another viewer.
A frustrated resident blamed the layout of Johnson’s Road for causing the accident.
‘Those sets of lights are annoying. It is an 80 km road. One lane until you get to those lights. It splits into two lanes in about the same amount of space as when it merges back into one.
So many idiots jump on the left lane hoping to run past everyone on the right. To merge? Nobody knows that word when they are on the left lane. ‘
Fellow truck drivers shared their own experiences of pushy drivers in the comments.
‘I’m driving a truck and it’s amazing what people will do to get for you! People say this to truckers and truckers, drive it and witness the idiocy yourself, ” said one man.

These are the things we deal with every day. If only the outcome was like this every time, then maybe people will learn that they can merge BEHIND a truck instead of risking multiple lives, ”said another.
However, the The majority of viewers criticized the Nissan Pulsar’s recklessness.
“If lack of talent was an Olympic sport, that guy would be a gold medalist,” commented one.
“That must be the biggest round of donkey riding I’ve seen all year! What a muppet, ”another user agreed.
“Well, he did get in front of the truck, if only for 10 seconds,” joked a third.
