This video was shown at the news and they said that the trailer was eventually stopped and nobody got hurt. They said the truck driver didn't see that car. Quite weird because from a trailer cabin you have a pretty wide field of view.

To sum it up: It happened in England when the woman driving the Renault Clio merged onto the highway. She quickly realized that the driver wasn't stopping ('cause he most likely wasn't paying attention) so she called the police saying she was gonna die. A few miles later the trucker finally pulled over onto the shoulder with the car still attached to the front of it. The woman was just fine due to wet road conditions which kept her car from gripping and flipping. I believe the trucker has been suspended while the company itself and the police investigate exactly how this happened.

that looks like a MAN-lorry capable of around 330hp, and it maybe demands constant acceleration to push like that: i can't see electric battery-based lorries anytime soon, though. max

#16 #2 #9 Stop the video at around 0:12 when the car is in the smaller window of the video car and the truck in the bigger window. You can see the truck driver. And you can see that he just can't see the car. And he probably isnt looking in front of his truck but a bit further along the road. Think about it. This was my opinion.
Still scary.

I can't explain how the car got there without the driver of the truck not knowing something had happened, but that part aside...

If you look at 0:11 you will see how far back the driver of the truck sits in the cab. This combined with the height of the truck and you have a very limited field of view immediately in front of the truck that would make the car invisible to the driver.

From the reports, the car failed to yield while merging with traffic and the initial collision was the fault of the car. But I cannot imagine how the truck driver didn't know something was wrong after the collision even though he couldn't see, he would have felt the impact.

I used to drive much larger and much more powerful trucks than this one, so I am speaking from 1st hand experience.

What with the price of fuel at the moment this seems like a viable option >:) Nice to see the lady got out alright, apart from her traumatic experience, hope it doesn't put her off getting behind the wheel again.

the truck's headlights are on. the truck driver cant see them on so he should atleast pull over to find out whats wrong ... even if he doesn't know about the car he should know driving with faulty headlamps is a traffic offense

Believe it or not no one recieves any formal training to drive on the motorway in UK. The common belief is that when your joining the traffic drivers in the left hand lane should move to the middle lane to make room for you - this is a politeness not a rule of the road. This mistaken belief and driver fatigue is probably what lead to this incident.

I have no idea what will happen to the truck driver but the car driver's own testimony will be used as evidence in her trial for driving without due care and attention or dangerous driving.

Largest vehicle I have driven had a bridge classification of 75tons with a 21ltr engine and yes you can feel nothing when you strike or get struck by a car.
