A video has shown a huge speeding truck coming dangerously close to crushing a child running across a busy road in Norway.
The footage captured by another truck’s dashcam shows children hopping off a school bus on a road in Høyanger, in west Norway. The incident occured June 19.
Shortly, one child attempts to run across the road with their view obstructed by the school bus they alighted from, unaware of the fast approaching truck.
The driver instantly spots the child and comes to a screeching halt, stopping just short.
A witness – who was also driving a truck – beeped his horn and flashed his lights to warn the oncoming truck of the potential disaster.
“I saw over the roof of the bus the truck was heading at it at a great speed. I blinked my lights and horn to alert the traffic and young people,” Tor Bjørn Kyrkjebø told NRK News.
Mr Kyrkjebø said he released the dashcam footage to warn pedestrians of the potential dangers of crossing busy roads.
