A video has captured the moment when a truck slammed into the Albert Road Bridge. The entire top of the truck was torn off by the impact with the debris hurtling over the bridge and onto the road. 

The crash happened seconds before a tram full of people was crossing the bridge metres away from the incident.

Luckily the tram driver applied the emergency brake and was able to slow down to a stop and cross without collision. 

Watch the crazy footage here!
