A video of a car carrier packed with new 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser SUVs involved in an accident is being widely shared on social media. The incident took place in Salalah, the third-largest city in Oman, where Toyota is trying to prioritise the Land Cruiser's rollout as the car has created quite a following of its own.

In the video posted by an Instagram page, many new Land Cruisers appear to be totalled due to the impact of the accident. However, the reason behind the accident is still unclear. Reports say that the car carrier was on its way to the dealership. The video has been posted in three parts. The first one shows as many as four damaged Land Cruisers, some of which were mangled.
