A video has gone viral on social media, which showed a car trying to overtake an abnormal load truck.
The driver of the car got impatient after driving behind the truck for a while, and is then seen trying to overtake the vehicle with the abnormal load.
However, the driver soon loses control after driving on the shoulder of the road, which led to the car jamming into the truck before crashing into the bushes.
The video was shared on Reza’s Twitter account with the caption, “THE VIDEO IS CLEARLY WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN FOLLOWING AN ABNORMAL LOAD. INSTEAD ONE SHOULD. 1. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE - WHICH IS A MINIMUM OF 3 CAR SPACES. 2. BE PREPARED. 3. BE POLITE. 4. BE PATIENT. LIVE ANOTHER DAY....@GTP_Traffstats @GautengProvince @_ArriveAlive @cci_network”
The post received a lot of reaction from social media users, who could not believe the driver was so irresponsible and reckless.
“When a taxi driver behaves then you should really know that things are bad”, @Zack_here commented on the video.
Another tweep added, “plain stupidity-the driver has himself/herself to blame for the accident when will people ever learn”.
One tweep posted a pic that is allegedly the aftermath of the accident.
