This is the moment a lorry smashes a parked car off the road as a six-year-old sat inside waiting for her granddad to buy ice-cream before the vehicle crashed into a house.

According to reports, the young girl was sitting in the car waiting for her grandfather to return with ice cream.

The granddad had stopped outside a minimarket on the Romanian National Road 6 in the commune of Bradesti located in the south-western Romanian county of Dolj.

While he was buying ice cream, his granddaughter was waiting in the car when the speeding lorry smashed the vehicle off the road.

Reports said that the car ended up in a ditch while the out-of-control lorry crashed into the front of a house.

The six-year-old girl only suffered minor injuries while the 60-year-old lorry driver died at the scene, according to reports.

The grandfather told local media: “I rushed out as soon as I heard the bang and I saw that the lorry had already crashed into the house.

“Everyone around was saying that the driver had died. I then looked to where I parked my car and saw it lying in a ditch.

“I nearly died in that moment. Thankfully, my granddaughter was all right. She was asking what happened. I think it was lucky that she was sitting in the back seat.”

The house owner said: “The lorry driver tried to avoid the parked car, but after he hit it, I think he lost control and went straight into my house. Luckily, no one was in it at the time.”

The young girl was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Meanwhile, the local authorities have confirmed that they are investigating the incident.
