A lorry loses control and does a 180-degree spin on the PIE, miraculously missed hitting other vehicles

I'm not saying there are supernatural forces behind this incident, but it's not improbable.

With the cam car travelling in Lane 1 and the lorry travelling on Lane 2, the video starts with the cam car diagonally behind the heavy vehicle on the PIE.

As both vehicles manoeuvre around a bend, the cam car promptly overtakes the lorry. 

This explains the change in perspective throughout the video.

As if something had possessed the vehicle, the lorry suddenly skids to the left.

The driver counters the skid by turning the wheel to his right.

Luckily, no vehicles were between the cam car and the taxi behind it, leaving a vast space open for the lorry to enter.

Due to the inertia from the sudden right turn, the back of the vehicle forcefully swings out.

The driver then turns his wheel to the left, resulting in the vehicle performing a 180-degree spin, reminiscent of those served by ballerinas at a recital.

The vehicle ends up back onto Lane 2.

Towards the end, the back of the lorry slams against the front of a moving shipping truck in Lane 3.

Honestly, with that kind of stunt, it is definitely a miracle that the lorry driver managed to avoid a potentially fatal collision.

Netizens' reactions

Several netizens commended the driver for his quick thinking and amazing skills at handling a skidding lorry, while others seemed to speculate possible reasons behind the sudden skid.

He was so quick to react too!

Judging from the video, it is not certain if the lorry was speeding on that day. Seeing how easily the cam car overtook the vehicle, I would not be that quick to jump on the 'lorry must have been speeding' train.

Hopefully, he's alright!

  • Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

    A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con

    If you want to chope a table, you put a packet of tissue. If you want to chope a parking lot, you put two 'ah-mas'?

    The 'chope-ing' culture is prominent in Singapore and it is usually observed when dining out at coffee shops or hawker centres. And unfortunately, this toxic culture has been shaped to be part of the Singapore identity. Watch the product of our toxic culture unfold before your very eyes:  What Happened? This incident occurred at an open-air carpark at Block 114 Geylang Lorong 3. Two 'ah-mas' stood in a vacant white parking lot to 'chope' in a supposedly crowded

    Singaporean Volkswagen GTI driver enters a roundabout at full speed, hits a MPV and scoots off in Johor Bahru

    After 2 long years, we can finally drive into Johor Bahru to do the things we love - pumping cheap petrol, eating delicious food and going for massages. However, not all of us deserve this privilege. Especially for reckless hooligans such as this driver: What Happened? The following incident occurred at a roundabout in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.  A Singaporean Volkswagen Golf GTI was travelling at a fast speed and recklessly cutting lanes as he entered a roundabout

    Spot an illegal PMD on the road? Shout and honk at them. They might lose balance and fall like these clowns

    Every time I see a PMD on the road, a Young Punk (YP) is usually the one behind it.  Worse still, an underaged YP who couldn't care less about their safety. Watch how a motorcyclist teaches a couple of YP PMD riders a lesson they will never forget: What Happen? The incident occurred at Punggol Field, involving a motorcyclist and two illegal PMD riders. The motorcyclist gave the PMD riders a short honk upon performing a discretionary right turn, most probably te
