Video: Dash cam captures wild crash of a truck hitting a portaloo

Despite the dramatic footage, no injuries were reported – but it does show the importance of checking your mirrors.

A truck driver in the US has captured a dramatic crash on his dash cam where a white ute attempts to change lanes and is sandwiched between two trucks.

The accident occurred on Interstate-26 in Polk County, North Carolina, about 130km west of the largest city, Charlotte or approximately 60km north of Spartanburg, where a BMW factory is located.

The footage shows a white RAM pickup move left to avoid a slow-moving truck, with the driver apparently unaware that another truck is already in the lane.

The ute is dramatically crushed between the two trucks, but perhaps the most bizarre element is when the truck with the dash cam runs off the road directly into a portaloo servicing a construction site.

In the footage – sourced from the trucking company dash cam – you can clearly see the airbags of the ute (which still seems to have a dealership sticker on the side window) inflating in the collision.

Local reports state that no serious injuries were reported and that the driver of the white ute was charged with careless driving.

The crash caused significant delays to traffic on the Interstate highway, but should serve as a reminder to always check your mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes.

UPDATE #TRAFFIC ALERT: The NCDOT is now saying I-26 W in Polk County near mile marker 64 could be closed till 2pm after a crash happened earlier this morning.
