Here's an Isuzu container truck that toppled onto two LMVs.






A golden beige car...



...and a red pickup truck.



Unfortunately there was a human trapped inside the crushed pickup truck




The doctors hooked up a saline drip inside the wreck itself, to preserve the guy's life, until he could reach hospital




To extricate the driver, from the crushed wreckage, hydraulic jacks were deployed to re-expand the wreckage

I thought only for this reason, developed countries require truck trailers to have soft sidewalls. wondering where this happened.

really sad.

Jeez!

What was the truck transporting ? Lead??

Ram, where did you get this information from? Was the truck way past its legal load limit (hence causing it to topple whilst turning) ?

wow..what if it were two wheelers in its place!!!!!
im sure the weight distribution of the items in the truck was totally not right and toppled due to shift in center of gravity.
its a traffic junction and i don't think speed was factor here.


i thought this took place only out here were outdated transport trucks are used to move goods on roads and mostly in the most unethical way!!

Its downright horrible! I hope the person in the red pickup truck is out with external injuries and no major internal or long term damage.

Really horrendous incident. The guy in the red pickup truck is one lucky guy.

From the script, looks like this is somewhere in the Golden Quadrilateral (Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos). RHD, so can't be Vietnam.

Thats a bad wreck. Luckily the guy in the car is not killed. Good no cyclists and bikers were around (considering the population of these is high in Asain countries).
