Quick-thinking Adelaide truckie averts disaster along dual carriageway

Like every truckie on our roads, Dylan Grant has seen his share of sketchy moves by motorists over the years.

But he reckons this site on Port Wakefield Road earlier this week, as reported by 10 News First Adelaide, just about takes the prize for the most heart-stopping moment.

“He just had no idea that he was on a dual carriageway,” said Grant, who alerted other truckies to the looming danger and saved the day by blocking the road near Angle Vale.

“I reckon I’ve saved a life, at least his.”

The Strathalbyn man’s grateful wife agreed, thanking Grant profusely during a phone call he later had from police.

Grant said signage along the road would help stop this happening again.
