Google Maps Street View: Embarrassing photo leaves Russia truck drivers red-faced (Image: Google Maps)
Google Maps Street View has captured the aftermath of a very embarrassing incident on a road in Russia. The photo shows a huge truck completely overturned on the side of the road following an accident. To make matters worse, the lorry was clearly carrying an enormous load of sand which has spilt all over the tarmac. The huge swathe of sand covers a large portion of the road, forcing cars to drive around it.

Adding to the comedy of the Street View image, are the two officials in uniform and two plainclothes men staring right at the Google camera as they stand by the spillage.
It is as though the truck drivers have been caught red-faced in the embarrassing mishap.
Four other men are by the truck itself, two or whom are crouching and appear to be assessing the damage.
It is clear the tidy-up of the sand spill could take some time and effort.
There is no obvious clue as to how the accident happened. The back of the truck appears to go over the side of the road and has crashed into the barrier. The sand can be seen in a mound on the grass verge, too.
Viewers of the Google scene are simply left to guess what could have befallen the truck drivers and the overturned vehicle.
