Landslide video: a massive landslide takes out a truck in Peru

I know nothing about the circumstances of this video, which was reportedly shot on a mountain road in Peru, or how it worked out for the driver of the truck.  Sadly, I suspect not well:-

This is a truly massive landslide, but the initial impact on the vehicle was to push it forward rather than burying it:

The video was posted on 11th June, but I have seen no reports about this event.  Can anyone provide any more information?
