This traffic surveillance footage shows a passing truck lose a couple of tyres, which then clatter into a parked Nissan Navara bakkie with disastrous effect.

The clip shows the silver bakkie parked alongside the road. As the truck passes, the first rogue tyre clatters into the front of the Nissan, causing extensive damage and activating the airbags.

The second runaway tyre, however, ramps up into the air (out of screen), before landing directly on the roof of the unfortunate pick-up, just as its occupant makes a timely escape.
