A petrol station employee had just finished attending to a vehicle in need of fuel around 11 pm on Saturday the second of December.

As soon as the petrol attendant raised his head, it was almost too late to fathom what was about to occur.

A large truck with beaming headlights sped off of its path and crashed into the petrol station in Germiston, East Rand after losing control of his vehicle. The petrol attendant managed to sprint away with a few milliseconds to spare, avoiding possible injuries and death.

However, two vehicles were severely damaged by the accident and the driver of the Mercedes Benz, that was wiped out by the truck, was stuck in the car until Med-Help and other road side assistance arrived to free him from inside the vehicle.

The after-effects of the accident were horrid. Multiple people ended up sustaining injuries from the incident and the damage done to the actual garage was reported to take up to three months to repair.
