AN incredible video shows the shocking moment an HGV tries to make a turn and destroys a van in the process.
The video, uploaded to TikTok on the cartricked channel, shows why it's a good idea to keep well clear of HGVs on tight turns.
The video is shot from the dash cam of a car following the HGV which is attempting to make a tight left turn.
On the right hand side of the screen a small Ford van can seen waiting at the lights for the HGV to pass.
However it quickly becomes clear that the van is in a very bad place as the HGV begins to turn.
The rear of the HGV's trailer swings round and smashes into the van pushing it backwards.

The force of the HGV is pretty staggering and the van driver is helpless.
Even more shocking it that the driver is sat on the same side that is being crushed by the trailer.
The caption on the video reads 'Who was at fault?' and people had their opinions in the comments section.
