‘Everyone walked away with only minor cuts and bruises, side curtain airbags saved his life.’

Social media users questioned the cause of the crash, with some people pointing the finger at the Ute, while others blamed the Jeep driver.

‘It’s like some of you have never seen a slip lane. The jeep was not overtaking. The truck had moved into the slip lane to turn and the jeep kept going straight,’ one person posted.

Another person said: ‘The jeep driver crossed the road because by then he thought the Hilux driver would’ve slammed on his brakes and stopped in time.’
