A truly shocking accident took place earlier this week in Vietnam, where an out-of-control semi truck broke through the concrete street divider and smashed into three stationary vehicles, nearly obliterating a woman holding a small child.
Thankfully, she managed to run away. If she hadn’t reacted immediately, she would have been swept up by the car that she was standing next to, which was struck by the runaway semi.
As for why the driver of the semi suddenly lost control like that, well, that’s a little hard to gauge. On one hand, it seems like they may have been spooked by a smaller vehicle, leaving what looked like a bus stop. However, to go from that to basically making a hard left turn doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
There were of course multiple other people involved in this crash, such as the driver of the beige Toyota, as well as whoever might have been in that stationary taxi or the white sedan parked in front of it. We can only hope they’re all OK.
