The driver of the blue vehicle unrecognizable made it out alive, it's really a miracle to have survived that horrible crush from the truck. The accident occurred at the N12 road of Rondebult.
Eye witnesses say " the truck driver failed to brake on a sloppy surface, it continued and gained speed as it was going down the road and down on the road the was a vehicle it then crushed on it" we thought the driver is dead because of the way the car was smashed.
When the live saving emergency got to the scene also thought it was too late but surprisingly the men driving the vehicle black out but his heart was beating and he was also breathing. He was rushed to the nearest hospital.
Truck drivers should always use low gear on a sloppy surface to avoid such incidents on the road trucks are not meant to brake as small vehicles does, that's what most truck drivers get it wrong.
Use low gears that will help you to mentain a moderate speed, the truck won't run off like any other vehicle not on gears.
