A man by the name of Denis Lefebvre in Ontario, Canada, was driving back from work when the commercial truck in front of him suddenly swerved off the road and went up onto the roof of a house that was close by. The dashcam installed in Lefebvre's car captured the entire bizarre incident as it happened.

The 53-second video shows the truck moving smoothly before going into a ditch and the next moment finding itself on a roof. As Denis Lefebvre comes closer to the commercial truck, the driver can be seen jumping out and moving away from the vehicle he was driving.  Towards the end of the video, Dennis can be seen walking towards the driver who himself seems to be wondering as to how and what exactly happened.

According to Michelle Coulombe, a constable, when the truck swerved off the roadway, it drove into an open drain and then hit a water hydrant that resulted in the back of the truck to lift up and find itself on the roof. 

It was a good thing that at the time of the incident, the house under the truck did not have any occupants. The young driver and the person travelling with him were fortunately not injured. 

A tweet by a news channel said that the driver has been charged with careless driving in relation to the roadway crash that happened. 

After the video garnered more than 1 million views, Sharon said that she gifted the dashcam as a present to her husband on his birthday in August and she was grateful that Denis was a person who tailgates a vehicle in front of him.
