In video: Lucky escape for bystanders as runaway lorry slides down snowy hill

Motorists and pedestrians had a lucky escape when a runaway lorry slid down a street before coming to a rest when it hit a fence.

The vehicle slid down a snowy street then crashed into a fence in Glenmavis, North Lanarkshire.

Witness Niki Blackhall, who filmed the incident, said: "The men in the truck got out to help the crashed cars and the truck slid away.

"It hit our wall. I'm just glad nobody was injured and the wall stopped the truck from sliding down the hill, as the outcome would have been a lot worse."
