Truck driver drives 3 km in reverse gear to prevent accident after brake failure, video goes viral
A video of a truck driver using his presence of mind saving lives after driving 3 km in reverse gear due to brake failure, has gone viral. He has also raised the alarm by shouting to draw the attention of people that the brakes of the vehicle failed and asked people to be alert.
He drove the truck in reverse for three kilometres till he came to open farmland. He then directed the vehicle toward the open space. Finally, the farm's uneven surface assisted the driver in slowing down and coming to a halt. The time and venue of the incident is not known.
