The Daily Mail reports:

A couple have miraculously walked away from a horrific car accident captured on dash-cam just weeks after their five-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer.

Regan and Rachel Cunliffe were heading home to Kaukapakapa from a medical appointment in Helensville, north-west of Auckland, when an oncoming truck lost control of its trailer on the State Highway 16. 

Video footage shows the couple approach the bend in the road as smoke billowed from the back wheels of the heavy cargo. 

Mr Cunliffe, who was behind the wheel, told Daily Mail Australia he drives the road ‘all the time’ and usually travels along the corner twice a day.

The dashcam footage is terrifying. Thank God Regan kept his cool and helped prevent it from being far worse.

The car accident comes just weeks after the Cunliffe family learnt their son Theo has cancer.

The five-year-old was diagnosed with leukemia on January 9.

Give A Little page has been created on behalf of the family to relieve the financial burden following the diagnosis and car accident.  

‘For his family it’s a big adjustment and there are lots of unexpected costs,’ the page says.

‘They will need to get a car to manage Theo’s hospital visits and continue to look after their three older kids.

Regan and Rachel are having a very tough time. If you can help them out, I’m sure they’d appreciate it. Rachel incidentally is the web designer for Kiwiblog and Regan manages for it.
