Viral video: Trucks skid on motorway in synchronised crash | Travel News | Travel

A viral video has captured two lorries struggling to drive on an icey motorway in China.

The red lorry in front can be seen driving at speed when it tries to turn slightly.

They quickly lose control on what appears to be an slippery road, perhaps due to the bad visibility and weather conditions.

Their back wheels skid out of control and it quickly does a 180 degree turn on the road.

What happens next is miraculous.

The blue lorry behind the driver notices them losing control and tries to turn to avoid a collision.

Although an accident, the two lorries then appear to skid out of control in perfect synchronisation.

They both come to a stop without any other cars around and no-one appears hurt.

Despite the blue lorry hitting the barrier, it continues to drive on slightly and also seems to be in one piece.

The video has had nearly 500,000 views already on Imgur and has caused much hilarity online.

One Imgur decided to grade their fine spinning: “7/10, I had to dock points for the blue truck hitting the wall.”

Another user deemed it much better, giving it an “8/10.”

Others saw a lucrative deal in the making: “Synchronized truck driving would make a great Netflix series.”

Thankfully at least one person was concerned about the drivers.

Another remarked: “Imagine being red truck. How confused you’d be after that first 180.”

Another lorry driver was caught in a disaster when driving under a low bridge.

Their trailer failed to go down and instead was elevated behind the cab truck.

It then slams into the bridge, crumpling and throwing the contents all over the road.

No-one was hurt but the bridge was shut and dismantled in case the structure and integrity of it was damaged.

An investigation as launched to find if the blame lied with the driver or the lorry mechanisms.
