Kuwait couple on honeymoon in horror truck Uber smash

A Kuwait couple on their honeymoon have survived a horrific crash after an 18-wheeler truck smashed into their Uber. 

In the footage, the semi-trailer can be seen driving on Princes Highway in Sydney before driving straight into the silver vehicle.

The truck driver continues to drive along the road as he pushes the small car sideways down the street.

The young couple inside the Uber were on their way to the airport to fly home after their honeymoon.

They escaped with only minor injuries while the truck remarkably only had tiny scratches.

The car they were travelling in suffered significant damage however.  

Witnesses described hearing screeching tyres as the car was pushed about 30 metres down the road.

‘It seems like the car was changing lanes and just the front of the truck clipped the car, and just basically locked in the front and kept on pushing,’ Niall Little told Seven News.

Aggressive beeping can be heard in the video as the truck continues to take the grey car for a drive down the road. 

The truck is then seen driving off as stunned drivers in oncoming traffic watch.  

Sam Broome was driving near the truck when it collided with the Uber, and managed to take evasive action.

‘Pretty full on, I thought if I don’t move they’re going to take me out as well,’ she said. 

She checked to make sure everyone in the car was okay, and said the couple were upset, shaken and shocked.

‘The driver of the truck was quite apologetic. To start with he was very standoffish, “it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault”, in the end exchanged details. He was quite calm, explained that he had followed through correctly,’ Ms Broome said.

Police attended the crash on Monday and decided not to take any further action, but that changed after they saw the footage.

On Tuesday they visited the truck company’s depot at Warwick Farm to speak to the driver and management.

Direct Freight Express released a statement saying the person responsible had yet to be determined, and speed, drugs, alcohol, mechanical failure, fatigue or discourteous driving were not factors in the crash.
