Aussies stunned after van lands on top of Range Rover: 'HOW?'
Aussies have been left gobsmacked after a van managed to land on top of a car with three children inside.
Just after 3pm on Boxing Day, police were called to South Dowling Street in Moore Park after reports of a crash.
The driver of the Range Rover, a 41-year-old woman, as well as three children were taken to hospital, as was the driver and sole occupant of the van — a 41-year-old man. All had non-life threatening injuries.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the mother sustained chest and neck pain.
Social media users react to accident
One witness recorded a video of the chaotic aftermath showing the white van perched on top of the black Range Rover, which had its doors open and blinkers on. A horn can also be heard blaring in the background.
The front of the white van also appeared heavily damaged after the driver reportedly collided with the metal safety barrier on the highway.
"How is this possible," the passerby captioned the video, which has since been viewed more than 200,000 times. Many TikTokers agreed and speculated how something like this would happen.
"Goodness!!!" one person said. "Can someone please explain the physics to me?" another added.
"Mate you can't park there," a third person joked.
