A dashcam video captured the moment a ute and a car collided at an intersection in heavy fog.
The incident reportedly occurred on the New England Highway at Murphys Creek Road, west of Brisbane, Queensland, on Thursday.
It was posted on the Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page, where it attracted more than 100,000 views in less than 24 hours – and sparked a debate over who was to blame.
The ute is seen making a right turn before it is T-boned by a white car, which is left with a mangled hood.

However, it’s difficult to portion blame as the dashcam doesn’t show the traffic lights the two drivers faced.
Despite this, some blamed the ute driver, with one person saying: ‘Frankly he should lose his licence for the dumb sh** turn.’
Another added: ‘I reckon he turned on an orange light, expecting the white sedan to pull up. Depending on light sequence, Ute is at fault.’
But another noted: ‘Wouldn’t it be the white car at fault for not having lights on in hazardous weather.

‘I’m from Toowoomba and the fog here is thick as hell. Dare say the Ute wouldn’t of even seen the sedan honestly.’
However, others blamed both drivers saying their vehicles should have had their headlights on.
‘Why don’t people put their headlights on in such terrible conditions?’ one person wrote.
‘Both cars would have been practically invisible to each other in that rain. Both to blame [in my opinion].’
