Truck blocks tunnel after a 90 degree spin

Here’s a bizarre situation I stumbled across recently – a truck sitting at 90 degrees to the walls in a Hong Kong road tunnel, after somehow performing a 90 degree spin!

The original article from the Apple Daily explains how the truck came to be.

A truck in the Tseung Kwan O Tunnel spun out of control, suspected to be due to rainy road, running across two lanes, and forcing three vehicles behind to immediately stop, resulting in a 4 car pileup.

The article also includes dashcam footage of the truck spinning out.
