Truck jack-knife

A truck driver is lucky to be alive, escaping serious injury, after jack-knifing the road vessel he was driving near Balmoral last night.

At about 6pm, an unloaded flatbed truck was heading north on Natimuk-Hamilton Road, when the driver lost control going downhill at Frenchman's Creek.

Heading straight towards trees, the truck spun around to face the opposite direction after it jack-knifed.

Remarkably, the truck driver was able to walk away from the incident uninjured.
