Apr 9, 2019


Frightening new video has captured the moment a runaway truck drove into an arrester bed on the South Eastern Freeway on Tuesday morning.


According to The Advertiser:

During Tuesday’s incident, the truck’s brakes started to smoke just before 8.30am as the driver descended towards the tollgate at the top of Glen Osmond Rd.

The Advertiser understands the driver had troubles changing gears to slow the vehicle before its brakes failed.

Witness Rob Thomas said banked-up traffic cleared just seconds before the truck ploughed into the lower arrester bed at Leawood Gardens.
