Watch A-League legend survive brush with death as Tesla is destroyed by runaway truck, wrecking 18 other cars before crashing into school

A-League legend Daniel McBreen is lucky to be alive after a runaway truck slammed into his Tesla before wrecking eighteen other cars and crashing into a primary school.

McBreen, a former Central Coast Mariners player and football pundit on Network 10, survived a terrifying incident at Moorebank in Sydney’s south-west on Saturday afternoon.

The fully-ladden truck lost control at a notorious intersection before ploughing into nineteen cars and eventually crashing into a classroom at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.

McBreen shared the moment he was almost wiped out by the truck, which sent vehicles flying before hitting his car.

‘Interesting day today,’ he posted to X. ‘Thankfully we are ok, and hopefully everyone else is also, but that is our white Tesla. Was a very scary moment.’

McBreen then posted the dashcam footage from his Tesla, writing: ‘Dashcam. Only posting this as reports are only of minor injuries. How, I do not know.’

Emergency crews worked to free the trapped male truck driver after the incident.

Police will probe whether the driver had a medical episode before the crash.

‘He’s gone off the road, crashed into the gate at the local church and then finished underneath a classroom at the school,’ Sergeant Shaun Colls told 7News.

‘Thankfully, it is a weekend (so no children were at the school),’ he said.

A later police statement said ‘The driver was trapped within his cabin for almost 40 minutes before he was released by Fire and Rescue NSW and taken to Liverpool Hospital.’

Eight other people were also treated by paramedics at the scene, two of whom were taken to Liverpool Hospital.

Nobody, including the driver, was seriously injured.

The truck was stuck inside a classroom at the school, with traffic brought to a standstill due to the scale of the crashes.

NSW Fire and Rescue attended the scene to assess the building’s structural safety.

‘The truck will be towed for mechanical examination while the building is being checked for structural damage,’ the police said.
