Trailer Rolls Across Traffic After Breaking Loose on Busy Highway

A trailer broke loose on a busy highway outside Budapest, Hungary, on August 15, veering across traffic before slamming into the median strip, with parts of its cargo flying into oncoming traffic, according to the country’s roads agency.

Hungarian Public Roads posted the video, filmed on August 15, to Instagram. It shows the trailer swinging behind a vehicle before it breaks free.

Its cargo very nearly caused an accident in traffic on the other side of the road, but drivers managed to evade it.
