Confrontational images show a truck colliding with an Audi on a busy highway, causing the luxury car to crash into a wall.
The dashcam video showed the truck slowly entering Audi’s lane on Sydney’s M4 motorway at 6:30 am on Monday.
The angle of the impact turned the car in front of the driver’s cab and then against the concrete barrier, before the truck hit the Audi again as it passed by.

Both cars then turned on their hazard lights to indicate that an accident had occurred while a pile of debris was scattered across the highway.
Commenters on YouTube were divided as to who was wrong after the video was shared with Dashcam Owners Australia’s YouTube channel on Monday.
Some said the Audi driver asked to be hit while driving into the trucker’s blind spot – a section of the road that could only be seen if they looked back.
“That’s why I’m never in a blind spot,” one person wrote.
“Now I’m starting to realize why my dad told me never to stay next to trucks for too long,” wrote another.

Others said the truck driver should have checked his blind spot before attempting to change lanes.
“Just a reminder that there are no blind spots, only blind drivers,” one person wrote.
“Blind spot cameras / detectors should become mandatory for large trucks,” added another.
One commentator, meanwhile, joked that he remarked ‘before all truck drivers claimed it was the Audi’s fault for being on the track the truck intended to drive into.
