WE think we might have found Perth’s luckiest trailer owner and also it’s most fortunate pedestrian – all in 30 seconds of dashcam footage.
The video, taken last week in rainy conditions on Great Eastern Highway and shared by Dashcam Owners Australia, captures the moment a trailer dramatically unhitches from a four-wheel-drive in the right-hand-lane in Rivervale.
The runaway trailer hangs a hard left across the lanes next door, miraculously not colliding with any other cars on the way.
But the luckiest escape of the lot might be the high-vis pedestrian on the footpath, who breaks into a jog to get out of the way and then nonchalantly carries on with his shopping bags.
There is no word on whether he immediately sought out his nearest Lotto store to buy a ticket for last night’s $20 million Superdraw.
The trailer appeared to come to a rest on a grass verge on the other side of the footpath, with its owner pulling over to collect it.
