Louise Thomson, who was in the car with Grant and her young daughter, aged 3, commented on the post: “I can’t stop watching it, I think it’s even scarier watching it with the sound, the actual panic in our voices is horrible!”

Luckily all three, who were travelling home along the road near Perth on December 23 when the incident happened, received only minor injuries.
