Video: Truck spills load into oncoming traffic

This Russian dash-cam captured the moment when a large lorry lost its load on a highway sending steel girders and debris into oncoming traffic.

It looks like the trucker in question attempts to straighten up on the motorway a little too quickly just at the end of the slip road. This obviously shifted the weight of the massive steel girders, which go flying off the truck and rip the tarmac to shreds.

The driver of the car had to react quickly to avoid getting hit by both the girders and the rest of the debris flying towards him, and speaking on YouTube he said: ‘I’m currently drying pants’.

We don’t blame him…
