The shocking video shows a truck overloaded with wooden planks knocking a pedestrian to the ground shortly after narrowly missing the head of a cyclist.

The clip, filmed yesterday morning in Wigan, Greater Manchester, shows unsecured wooden planks lying on two piles of pallets.

The vehicle overtakes a cyclist with the wooden board leaning dangerously to the side of the truck and hovering over his head.

The truck passes the cyclist while he checks the top of his head while the person who shot the footage screams in shock, "Damn it!"

When the truck sped away, the large wooden plank loosens so much that it begins to run on the sidewalk.

It then knocks over a pedestrian walking down the street before the plank falls to the ground on impact.

It is not clear if the police were called after the incident.

Another clip showed the men who were filming chasing the truck and honking it to stop.

One of the men can be heard saying, “You have to go see the man down there, you just screwed him with something.

"You just hit him, ran him over."

Before the clip ends, the truck driver can be heard saying "thank you".

A Twitter user uploaded the clip yesterday, titled "Where There's a Debt, There's a Claim".

It received a barrage of responses, with one person commenting, "Stupid shit."

Another Twitter user said, "A 30 mph pallet on the skull must hurt that," while another said: "This cyclist … is checking that he still has his head?"

And another commented: "Cleaned him / The driver didn't even have a clue."
