**ORIGINAL** Truck accident caught on police camera Motorway M621 (M62 Crash Leeds West Yorks UK)
This accident (6 May 2010) happened on an urban motorway/highway (M621
junction 2, Leeds) when a truck trying to return to the driving lane
clipped a Porsche Boxster travelling parallel (lane capture/clinching) in
the nearside blind spot of the truck driver's view, having been given way
onto the carriageway 0.4 mile (0.64 km) earlier at junction one. The car
connects with the truck's steer wheel causing complete loss of steering and
pulls away just in time before the 44 tonne truck rolls over. The contact,
emergency braking and inertia causes the trailer carrying 30 tonne sand to
topple. The blind spot is a documental accident risk and with Divine grace
no one was injured. This has to be a lesson for drivers with small
vehicles on the dangers associated with a truck blind spot.
Speed was an issue with all vehicles concerned. The first truck in the
video was being followed by the second truck, under employer's instruction,
by an experienced new recruit on his first day with the company. Notice
how even after the accident the first truck, driven by the boss's son does
not stop to enquire or assist. WHY? Thank goodness it all happened in
view of CCTV cameras and dismissing any rumours, accusations or lies as a
result. Safe driving to all viewers and remember ALWAYS use the SEAT
BELTS. It could be the ONE & ONLY chance!

Just because you drive a suped up Volkswagen with a bunch of racing
stickers and a loud stereo doesn't actually qualify you to race a Porsche.

Crash for cash caught on RoadHawk camera system
This is a potential "Crash for Cash" caught on camera.
A lorry driver was going about his daily business when the car in front
suddenly brakes causing him to collide in to the back of him. On later
inspection the insurance company involved deemed the video to be suspect
and handed it over to the Police. After a long investigation the police
have busted a huge crash for cash ring involving over 120 incidents in the
last year, possibly totalling more than £3m of insurance fraud! This
clearly demonstrates the advantage of having a RoadHawk forward facing GPS
black box video camera recorder to your vehicle.
Police believe this to be a "decoy rear end shunt" two cars are involved.
Watch the video carefully. When the lorry driver pulls in to the left hand
lane the Mercedes closes the gap between itself and the car in front. The
VW Golf makes a sudden turn causing the Merc to brake hard. The Golf is
used as a decoy to give the Merc the excuse of having to stop quickly.
