Lucky escape for roadside bystanders when truck flips in northern India

This was the moment a group of roadside bystanders had a lucky escape when a truck flipped and came crashing down just a few metres from them.

The terrifying incident occurred at Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan on September 18th and was captured on CCTV.

The truck, laden with soap cartons, was on its way fro Urika to Jaipur.

While passing through the Jhunjhunu city, the driver attempted to negotiate a sharp turn at high speed, rocking the vehicle onto two wheels and then toppling over onto the roadside.

The security camera footage shows a group of men sitting outside a building, leap out of the way as the truck hurtles towards them.

A local police official Virendra Singh rushed to the spot after the accident.

He said: “No-one was injured in the accident though shop eepers have complained of damage. We are investigating and will take action according to the law.”
