accident blind spot check

This motorist failed to notice this truck in their mirrors and must not have checked the blind spot as he just casually merges into the trucks path. The truck catches the rear of the car and rotates in front of the truck where it gets stuck being push sideways. The truck driver does very well to control the truck and guide it and the car to the hard shoulder where he is able to slow the truck down and bring it to a safe and gentle stop.

  1. That concept is never delivered as education to our drivers – the only rule that seems to be advertised is don’t speed (and assume you’ll be just fine if you stick to that one rule).

  2. The car driver must of known he was there, he came up from behind him (at some speed) and tried to squeeze into a tight spot when he probably could’ve not pass him on the inside and tucked in behind him. Pants driving by that man.

  3. Always one that has to blame us truckies. Have you ever driven a truck Courtney? Do you know how hard it is to see over parts of the dash of some of the bigger Aussie and American cabovers? We sit high, we can’t always see everything around us, especially muppets like this. Educate yourself on what we have to put up with every day before spouting absolute shit like that.

  4. Wow, Courtney you’ve obviously never driven anything bigger than a car and have no consideration for people who do.
    Maybe the truck could have braked and let the car driver push in, but the truck had right of way, the car driver was clearly being an idiot and trying to push in right at the end of the lane.
    Hopefully this incident will improve the driver’s road manners.
