Truck crashes after tire blowout, kills driver
Virginia State Police are investigating a
fatal crash involving a line-painting truck on Interstate 81 in Augusta
Spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the truck wasn't painting
when the crash occurred at 7:05 a.m. Friday in the northbound lanes near
Spottswood. The truck was headed to a work site in Nelson County.
Geller says the truck's right front tire blew out and the
driver lost control. The truck then hit a guardrail and overturned. The
adult male driver died at the scene. He was wearing a seat belt. The
driver's name wasn't immediately released.
A male passenger was taken to Augusta Health Center for treatment of
non-life threatening injuries.
According to Virginia State Police, the truck driver was wearing a
seat belt at the time of the crash. Another person took the seat belt
off when they tried to administer aid to the truck driver.
The name of the truck driver is Edwin M. Tam of
Troutville, Va. He was 59-years-old. Tam worked for Sandras Marking

**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!
