WATCH: Aussie truck’s horror crash

DASHCAM footage shared by an Australian car-parts company shows the moment a truck rolled over and crashed after veering around a bend near Wundowie on Western Australia's Great Eastern Highway.

First Responder

First Responder. Coming back from a parts run to Perth, our driver was the first responder on the scene of an accident. Another reminder to load your vehicle well and be extra safe on our roads. Too many tragedies on our Wheatbelt roads. Fortunately the driver was able to walk away from the scene of the crash so hopefully he has no serious injuries.

Casey, whose dashcam captured this footage, is seen in the video turning his vehicle around, parking it on a grass verge, and rushing towards the truck. He is also a State Emergency Services volunteer, The West Australian reported.

His employer shared the dashcam footage on Facebook, writing: "Coming back from a parts run to Perth, our driver was the first responder on the scene of an accident. Another reminder to load your vehicle well and be extra safe on our roads.
