LOGGING TRUCK -CAR ACCIDENT IN NEW ZEALAND 5 SHOTS

Here in New Zealand, some logging trucks with VERY big, long, loads operate on private off-highway roads... here's what can happen when a car gets involved... kinda messy! .
------------------------------------------------------------------------

An idiot driving a Ford car (traveling at what seems to be excessive speed) ran up the rear of Truck #521... (in a BIG way). Two overhanging logs passed through the windscreen and out the rear window, missing the three occupants of the car (yes, unbelievably, they SURVIVED).

The car traveled 23 feet up the logs before hitting the rear bumper of the trailer (with enough force that the car was jammed under the bumper AND suspended off the ground, by the two logs). The occupants of the (still moving) car then jumped out onto the gravel road (ouch!!!).

The truck driver (Bill) was unaware of the incident and continued his journey along Goudies Road for 2 miles, then down Pukapuka Road for a further 2.5 miles.

Another truck (#655) was traveling up Pukapuka Road. Both trucks slowed to pass each other - in doing so the dust reduced enough for Bill (driving Truck #521) to see part of the car in his mirror. He asked Jimmy (in Truck #655) on the CB radio what was behind him. Jimmy replied that "a car is hanging off the logs".

On inspection they found no passengers in the car. Bill left his truck and drove back with Jimmy to locate the cars occupants. They found them on the side of the road, near to the scene of the original collision. The ambulance and police arrived...

Cause:

Excessive speed after leaving the public highway and not slowing down for dusty off highway conditions (where cars are NOT supposed to be).

The driver of the car stated he was familiar with the off highway road (and the off highway logging trucks traveling on it... YEAH RIGHT). He also stated he was traveling in light dust, but did not think a truck was ahead of him - even when he drove into VERY thick dust (obviously swirled up BY a truck). Stated he "applied the brakes" and when he saw the truck, looked at his speedo - and was traveling at 45 mph.

THE TRUCKIE WAS NOT AT FAULT.
