It was reported that an incident took place back in 2019 in which a female motorist and her baby escaped death by a whisker after a truck crashed and badly damaged the car they were travelling in.
The lady had just stepped out of the ill-fated vehicle together with her baby when the gigantic trailer came tumbling down and smashed the small vehicle.
The accident, which happened in Kenya, was confirmed by Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko. The mother and her baby had just exited the vehicle to buy a soda at a nearby shop when the trailer smashed their car.
Looking at the wreckage, most Kenyans were convinced the occupants of the destroyed car would not have survived the crash.
