Sharjah lorry driver in spectacular near miss at traffic lights

Vehicle jackknifes on junction after speeding to make changing light

A lorry driver risked disaster when he hurtled toward a busy junction to make a changing light, only to end up skidding and jackknifing on the road.

Footage captured the moment he narrowly avoided ploughing into other vehicles in a video shared by Sharjah Police.

“Dear drivers, a yellow light doesn’t necessarily mean hurry!” warned Sharjah Police in a message.
