Trucker says Camry driver ‘slammed into me as if I didn’t exist’ in dash cam video


A truck driver’s dash cam captured a strange collision during which a motorist doesn’t appear to brake at all before causing a head-on crash.

The video was shared by the Facebook page Dash Cam Owners Australia on September 22.

The dash cammer explains what happened in the video:

“It happened at Athol Park, approx 1mth ago, there was a broken down semi blocking the southbound direction.I was in my loaded truck heading north, coming past the semi, and slowing own as there is a work zone, and I spotted the Camry coming over to my side of the road.I had 1 mtr left to go to pass the semi, I stopped dead, the Camry powered on and slammed into me as if I didn’t exist .No rego, no insurance, probably no license, stunk of wine, life possessions filling the inside of the car.He was taken to hospital, I drove away bewildered, and continued working.$10k damage to my truck, his car written off.”
