Lorry driver narrowly avoids flying camper wreckage on American highway

Getting up, up and away for the weekend

A LORRY driver in Nebraska, USA managed to avoid a potentially nasty incident, after what appears to be the roof and walls of a DIY camper flew off the back of a pick-up and into the ‘semi’ truck’s path.

Captured on the lorry driver’s dash cam, the footage shows the wreckage going airborne — along with other items from the back of the pick-up — and disintegrating spectacularly.

Thankfully, the lorry driver was able to avoid most of the items that littered the road, and the trailer-towing pick-up, which immediately pulled over onto the hard shoulder.
