Reports said that the out-of-control bus driver, whose name has not been disclosed, died on the spot while it is currently unclear whether there are any other casualties.
The accident was filmed by a CCTV camera at the Ghatabillod toll plaza in the district of Dhar in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh and shared by local media.
In the footage, a stationary lorry is seen at the toll booth as a speeding bus approaches.
Without appearing to brake, the oncoming bus hurtles over the speed bumps and then crashes into the back of the lorry.
The bus’ momentum then pushes the lorry out of shot.
According to local media, the two vehicles were mangled together and the local authorities sent a crane to the toll booth to separate them.
Meanwhile, the emergency services arrived on the scene and paramedics confirmed that the bus driver had died in the accident.
The police investigation is still ongoing.
