Police say this HGV driver wasn't paying proper attention to the roads - leading to this shocking moment when his truck hits the back of a family car, injuring the adults and kids inside.
As the video shows, the car was broken down on the A55 when the truck hit it from behind.
61-year-old driver Thomas Anthony Holland was ordered to pay a £300 fine and costs at Mold Crown Court. Police have released the video above as a warning to drivers to pay attention on the road.
The Kia was stationary in lane one after breaking down, all four occupants – two adults and two children - were taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd by ambulance.
PC Robert Williams from the North Wales Police Roads Policing Unit said: "We were extremely lucky not to be dealing with a fatal road traffic collision and are thankful that all four occupants were released from hospital.
"This just shows that not paying attention when behind the wheel of any vehicle can have consequences."
