A shocking crash took place last week in Ukraine, when a truck driver made an ill-advised left turn directly into the path of two speeding vehicles.
One of the two cars was traveling at 211 km/h (131 mph), which is well over any speed limit in the country where you can’t go over 130 km/h (80 mph) on the motorway. While the vehicle that ended up impacting the truck wasn’t going quite as fast as the cammer, they were still clearly well over the legal limit.
It goes without saying that the truck driver shouldn’t even have considered making that left turn without being absolutely certain that no other cars were being put at risk.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case and the dark-colored wagon, which looks like a VW Passat Variant, ended up smashing right into the side of the truck, seemingly impacting the rear wheels – which in turn may have been what made this accident survivable.
Going so fast on a public road, at night, is not something we’d recommend, as it gives you much less time to react to an unexpected situation. In the end, though, while they were definitely speeding and endangering themselves, the blame lies with the truck driver, who simply shouldn’t have made that maneuver. The fact that the occupants of the car survived such an accident is almost a miracle!
