A freak accident involving a lorry carrying a container and a personal vehicle occurred on Monday along the Southern Bypass, Gitaru-Kikuyu.

The truck turned on its side and crushed onto a personal vehicle bringing traffic to a standstill. No casualties were reported from the accident, but photos shared on social media show the extent of the damage caused on the VolksWagen Tiguan vehicle.

For those of us who are morbidly afraid of driving alongside the big trailers, the photos below will give you a good reason to avoid them like the plague.
