Car Crushed By Lorry But No-one Can Decide Who's In The Wrong
A video showing a lorry crushing a little blue car has caused a bit of a rift among its viewers. No one can seem to agree who was in the wrong.
Either way, it's not exactly the easiest watch...
This busy UK junction seems like just the kind of place where shit like this would happen. The dashcam footage shows the little blue car undertaking and preparing to merge, and it seems that the lorry driver just doesn't notice them.
The accident took place at Magna Park in Leicester.
Comments vary, but it seems like most are on the side of the lorry.
The top comment, with an impressive 11 likes, was made by short2uk, who says: "Absolutely brilliant! That total bell end in the blue car deserved it! You never do that to a lorry they need the extra space for turning!"
Fellow YouTuber Eddie C agreed, saying: "It's the blue car at fault, if observe clearly you can see there are markings on the road."
While 1London Witness criticised the lorry driver for not looking both ways: "I wouldn't have done that myself but Imagine if it was a cyclist that came up on the inside like that? The lorry drove into a stationary vehicle because he only looked to his right and not both ways.
"The blue car was ahead of the lorry before the collision happened so the lorry driver was at fault through lack of effective observation, any experienced driver of a large vehicle would anticipate something would likely go into a gap on the left/near side and be prepared for it. Corrective observational training needed for this lorry driver."
It's a really difficult one, but I reckon that I'm on the side of the lorry. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
