“That’s what happens when they get a driver’s license without a driving test,” someone wrote.

“Wouldn’t take selfies with thumbs up if someone is seriously injured or killed,” said another.

‘What an idiot! If I was with the emergency services I would knock that phone out of his hand,” wrote another.

“Wow… You just can’t help it, stupid,” said another.

Other commentators called the driver a “wanker” and a “loser” and assumed he was speeding because there was no rain on the highway.

NSW Police have confirmed that no charges have been filed against the driver and no one was injured in the crash.
