WATCH | SA driver FLIPS his truck – DISTRACTED by cell phone [Video]

Dashcam footage taken from inside a South African lorry cab this week has captured the moment a distracted driver ended up flipping his truck over. The clip, which has since gone viral online, serves as a stern reminder to us all about the do’s and dont’s of road safety.

SA TRUCKER TRIES TEXTING AND DRIVING, LEARNS HARD LESSON

Just after 16:00 SAST on Saturday 11 June, the trucker in question was heading down a route he felt familiar with. Allowing himself some time to check his cell phone, the man behind the wheel starts sending text messages.

He tries to keep his attention divided equally between his screen and the road, and for a brief time, he succeeds. But the driver’s luck eventually runs out in spectacular fashion, when he peers over the dashboard and realises he has left it too late to avoid an accident.

The truck careers off the road, briefly flying through the air leaving our trucker in a state of disbelief. The HGV then makes a heavy impact with the ground below, sending the driver sprawling across his cab. He’s left to dangle in an undignified manner, held in place only by his seatbelt.
