A white van - whose driver had apparently dozed off at the wheel - veered off the road and rammed into an oncoming truck on a road in the village of Mylushi in the Lutsk district of Ukraine recently.

The collision was captured on CCTV cameras, the Metro reported. The footage shows the Renault swerving from its line and banging into an old blue truck which was towing a trailer with a digger.

The front of the white van was completely mangled, with its side door ripped off. The driver and the passenger in the van escaped without any major injury. But the smash-up left them dazed and they were helped out of the vehicle by passers-by. 

Witnesses at the scene - who had spoken to the driver after the accident - believed he had fallen asleep, the local media reported.

One of them was quoted as saying: "The driver was going from Lutsk to Kovel. I saw that he was moving strangely and crashed into the oncoming vehicle. We think that he had fallen asleep while he was driving."

Paramedics reached the spot immediately and rushed the injured to the hospital.
