This is the shocking moment a lorry was engulfed in flames following a crash.

The footage, captured by a dash cam, shows the terrifying moment a lorry lost its braking, causing it to career out of control down a highway in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.


The footage shows the driver of the truck attempting to take evasive action. However, he does hit some cars as he tries to keep the truck as far to the left as possible.

One of the lucky escapees is a pickup, which was hit and then nearly crushed by the huge vehicle.

The truck suddenly topples over into its side and bursts into flames.

Motorists all around frantically move their cars away from the burning wreck for fear of it exploding as its cargo of gas canisters ignites.

It is not known if anyone was injured in the crash.
