**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!
1988 - Brands Hatch - Moreno accident and that pile-up
After 22 laps, it all started to go wrong. Roberto Moreno decided that the best place to pass Gregor Foitek was on the outside at Paddock Hill Bend, and the result of this brainless attack was that the Brazilian ended up in the tyres. Out came the red flag. Blame was laid onb the Swiss, because of his reckelss driving style and ever-readiness to 'shut the door' for the final incident of this black weekend, this time was obvious proof of his guilt After Roberto Moreno's accident, the restart saw Johnny Herbert get away slowly, both Martin Donnely and Pierluigi Martini outdragging the Englishman. His third place then came under attack from Gregor Foitek., and the two cars collided on the straight, ramming the guardrail head-on with exceptional violence. They rebounced back into the middle of the track to be hit by Olivier Grouillard's Lola. This impact send Foitek's car into a series of rolls out of which he escaped with a chipped bone in his right hand. With both ankles broken this ended Herbert's season. Grouillard escaped unhurt but went to hospital as a precaution due to heavy bruising and shock. A total of nine cars was involved in this horrific pileup. Eventually only 10 cars lined up for the 3rd restart!
