Death nearly missed as pedestrian manages to dodge an out-of-control garbage truck in the nick of time

Death nearly missed as pedestrian manages to dodge an out-of-control garbage truck in the nick of time



TL;DR - Garbage truck loses control and crashes into traffic light while almost taking out a pedestrian 

This is exactly why you should never use your phone while crossing the road! 

Watch this 60-second clip to see how vigilant the pedestrian was (phew, thankfully)

What happened? 

On April 16, a Sembcorp garbage truck lost control and caused an accident along Ganges Ave. One pedestrian narrowly avoided the collision.

SGRV’s Facebook page received dashcam video of the incident, which showed a white garbage truck veering suddenly at a traffic light.

The truck slammed into both the traffic light and the divider. A woman crossing the intersection managed to see the approaching truck and quickly sprinted back to the side of the road for safety.

Always ensure that vehicles are stopped at the stop line and look out for traffic before crossing the road. You'll never know what goes on behind the wheels.
