An unknown vehicle, travelling in the opposite direction, failed to dim their lights upon approaching the truck.

Due to his vision being impaired, the truck driver came off the side of the road.

The vehicles scraped each other, resulting in damage to the side of the truck and the bull bar.

The damage to the other vehicle is unknown, as it fled the scene.

Officers from Murray River Police District stated the incident could've resulted in a head-on collision if the blinded truckie had drifted into the path of the other car instead of off the road.

Police are continuing their inquires and are reviewing dash cam footage.

They're calling on the driver of the other vehicle to hand themselves in.
