• Lorry pushes car at 60mph in Yorkshire - Video Included!

this happens quite often. when lorries from mainland europe come over to the UK for deliveries, the fact that the driver is on the left hand side instead of the right like over here, means that when they're merging into another lane, they often can't see a car that is right next to them. and if the car is just a little infront of the lorry, the lorry hitting into the side of the car spins it out infront of it. almost happened to me once, but fortunately i noticed him and sped up to get out of the way of the idiot. but to go on without noticing...
If it were me in that car the lorry driver would have no problem hearing me screaming and shitting everywhere.
That truck is incredibly purple.

Britain sucks ass

To all the people who seem to know the fine view capabilities of lorries: [img]http://www.motorcyclebasics.com/images/content/blind22.jpg[/img] The checkered areas are blindspots.

Wouldn't cost all that much and would probably save a few lives..

I'm not surprised he didn't see the car in front. Then height above the ground and the distance from the windscreen in the cab means he has no spacial awareness there. It's how the car got there in the first place that's odd.

Haha genius.
Man, the craziest thing I ever saw on the road was some lady pulling a gas pump hose sticking out of the car's fuel intake. If I saw this going on in the highway, it would have been very weird... but the highways are never that clear around here. It probably would have ended up in a big mess. And for that matter, I don't think I've ever seen that color on a truck. Guess American truckers aren't that manly.
I can understand not seeing the car, but not seeing the sparks, or hearing anything? And I'm sure having a car stuck to the front of your truck affects its handling a bit.

It's amazing that the car didn't roll. Good thing the road was wet so the tires slid.
