On reaching the curve, the driver of the truck in the CCTV’s view realised that the tanker in the opposite lane had encroached on his side of the road. Panicky, the truck driver tried to swerve his vehicle to avoid a crash. Unfortunately, it was too little too late, and he smashed into the fuel tanker.
