A video of a truck that capsized but continues to move is causing a stir on social media. This is seen in a video clip posted by @GigaBoas on Twitter.
The short clip shows the big vehicle turning what looks like a sharp curve but the driver loses control of his vehicle and it capsizes. However, many social media users are amazed at the fact that the engine or chassis keeps running and moving forward, leaving the top part lying on the road.
The troubled driver is seen chasing behind the chassis and there’s music playing in the background, a song similar to one of a tune performed by Celine Dion, My Heart Life Will Go On.
The Twitter account holder is also surprised as to how this could have happened and Briefly News looks at the funny reactions from the viral post.
The account holder wrote:
“The truck engine: I must reach my destination no matter what, hahaha.”
