Toyota Plows into Parked Truck......x 2

Post by parrot » October 4, 2018, 3:14 pm

On 24 Sept a Toyota Vios plowed into a double tractor-trailer that was parked off the KK highway near Non Soong. The car was going 170kph.....the truck 0. Fatal attraction.

Last night, near the cancer center, again in Non Soong, another Toyota plowed into the rear of a parked truck with logs.....off the side the road. Again, the driver of the car died.

Night time driving!!

In a third-world circus, the difference between a parking lot and highway shoulder is negligible. Ahh, paradise.

texting, sleeping, mind wandering.. Perhaps even watching a video on the DVD player in their car. Who knows. If the parked vehicles were fully off the highway you'd have to wonder how the devil they managed to run directly into the back of it..

the FB link photos (you have to scroll way down that FB page) show the truck nearly a meter to the left of the solid white line that separates the traveling lane from the breakdown lane. A front shot of the truck shows that it isn't in an area with the frontage road. One thing you can probably bet is that the truck didn't have its emergency flashers turned on...

But given that there is a frontage road within a couple of Km, why on earth would anyone park on the main road when they can use the frontage road to park safely ](*,)
