It was a very lucky escape for drivers after a truck veered onto the other side of a busy motorway in Ryde in Sydney's North West.

In alarming dash-cam footage obtained by Nine News Sydney, the truck almost struck several cars and another truck before coming to a halt inside of a tunnel overpass.

The incident involved at least three other cars was reportedly caused after the driver "blacked out" while behind the wheel.

A number of bystanders have been praised for attending to the truck driver.

"Good to see we are good-natured humans...and the 2 big trucks blocking to make it safe. Hope hes ok and the red Prado driver too," wrote one on the Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page.

Another said: "Well handled everyone! Obvious that something was up with the truck driver. Everyone got the hazards on, hopped out and assisting well done."
