Truck Causes Brutal Crash

Hi All
Just seen this:

Runaway Truck Causes Brutal Crash
PINETOWN - A driver with a camera attached to the dashboard of his vehicle, has captured a horror crash that has claimed 22 lives in a single hit.
Earlier reports of 27 or more dead are incorrect. Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the initial figure of 27 dead had decreased to 22. He said 19 people died on scene and three died in hospital

Re: Truck Causes Brutal Crash

Around here it seems quite common for people to drive through red lights after they've changed, for this reason I always look both ways before driving off as my light turns green.  The runaway truck was clearly 'to blame' here but mightn't things have been a lot less disastrous if people had looked before pulling away at the lights? (though that seemed to come through so quick in the video they maybe wouldn't have seen it coming anyway.)
Very nasty.

Instinctive with me...self preservation I guess.

Re: Truck Causes Brutal Crash

I agree, I always check and never 'assume' others are driving safely and within the law.
That is a shocking video and certainly makes you think. Blink and your dead. Horrible for relatives to see loved ones killed like this. Undecided
