Indian Australian pest controller just lucky to be alive in freak accident

The ambulance, fire trucks and police were at the scene of the accident within some time, however, it took almost 40 minutes to get Suresh safely out of his work truck.

RF Pest Management’s Suresh (name changed on request) started his morning on a pleasant note with plans to finish most work by late afternoon to attend a get-together in the evening.

However, he could drive only a few kilometres from home before a freak accident turned his work truck upside down and left him stuck in it.

A very kind passerby who happened to be a nurse called the ambulance and stayed with Suresh and calmed him while he was trapped inside the vehicle.

What happened:

As per the witness who was right behind Suresh, “we were like on 30km/hr speed at the crossing.”

“I saw that car just banged with his work truck and it flew in the air and turned on its side,”

she told The Australia Today.

Another unfortunate driver of the third car was just waiting at the other end of the crossing and got her car involved by sheer bad luck.
The ambulance, fire trucks and police were at the scene of the accident within some time, however, it took almost 40 minutes to get Suresh safely out of his work truck.

The female driver involved in the accident was treated by paramedics as she was visibly shaken by the whole ordeal.

There was a loud cheer from the anxious family/friends of Suresh and others watching when they had their first glimpse of him in the middle of a team of paramedics and CFA responders helping him out.
