Dramatic surveillance video of Douglas Street truck crash shows the moment of impact
A concrete staircase ripped apart, a tree torn out of the ground. This is just some of the damage left behind by Thursday’s horrific crash. Typical busy traffic on Victoria’s Douglas Street. This surveillance video captured by a camera mounted on the Red Lion Inn. But watch the truck to the left of the screen. It stops just seconds before the moment of impact. Randy Eckert of the Saferway Driver Training School says it’s a miracle the driver survived.
“I would say that he’s very lucky to be alive. The tree itself, I mean, the branches could have come through the window. The shrapnel of all the concrete, and everything, blowing up around it.”
On Thursday morning, Eckert and a student driver were in their vehicle on Douglas Street.
