Moment truck overloaded with wooden planks smashes pedestrian to the ground

Shocking video shows a truck overloaded with wooden planks knocking a pedestrian to the ground just moments after narrowly missing a cyclist’s head.

The clip, filmed yesterday morning in Wigan, Greater Manchester, shows unsecured wooden planks lying on the top of two piles of pallets.

The vehicle overtakes a cyclist with the wooden plank leaning dangerously off to the side of the truck and hovering over his head.

The truck passes the cyclist as he then checks the top of his head, while the person who filmed the footage screams in shock: ‘F*****g hell!’

As the truck then speeds away, the large wooden plank becomes so loose that it starts to run along the pavement. 

It then knocks over a pedestrian walking along the road before the plank crashes onto the ground from the impact.  

It is not clear if police were called after the incident. 

Another clip emerged showing the men who were filming chasing the truck and honking at him to stop.

One of the men can be heard saying: ‘You’ll have to go and see that man down there, you’ve just t*****d him with something.

‘You just hit him, run him over.’

Before the clip ends, the truck driver can be heard saying ‘thank you’.

One Twitter user uploaded the clip yesterday captioned: ‘Where there’s a blame there’s a claim.’

It received a flurry of responses, with one person commenting: ‘Stupid t***s.’

Another Twitter user said: ”30mph pallet on the skull gotta hurt that’, while another said: ‘That cyclist…checking that he still had his head?’

And another commented: ‘Cleaned him out/ The driver didn’t even have a clue.’
