New footage has emerged of the fatal Field's Hill crash that claimed the lives of 22 people last week.
The CCTV aerial footage shows the moment the truck hit the first taxi, before slamming into a car and three taxis on the other side of the intersection.
The crumpled remains of the first taxi are flung across the road to the other side of the intersection.
Two people are seen crossing the road seconds before the truck enters the intersection, narrowly escaping being hit.
The driver of the truck has been arrested and charged with 22 counts of murder.
He made his first court appearance in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court this week.
This video has been removed from YouTube. It was allegedly captured illegally. Below are stills from the video.

Below is a video of the first footage to emerge of the crash. Warning: it is of a graphic nature.
