May their souls RIP. Aren't CVs supposed to have guard rails along the sides to prevent these kind of crashes?

That is one horrific crash. I cant beileve it happened at 6am in the morning when neither drink, sleep or rash driving ( driver who happens to be a teacher must be a placid fella ) could be involved for something as major as this.

I would just attribute this to a freak accident. May god rest their souls

May their souls RIP. It seems as if the CV moved over the car. Very unfortunate incident.

The truck driver didn't run away from the scene of the accident. In fact it was him who reported the accident to the police.

Default Horrible roads!

The conditions of the roads are horrible.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were trying to avoid some huge-pothole when they lost control!

the story goes like this.they had left from home at 3 am to the airport and it seems the driver of the car had slept.there was no potholes there and the car doing high speeds rammed into the truck.the police was informed by the truck driver and still it was no use untill a crane came to lift the truck so that the bodies could be taken out.they were in a shattered condition.all guys were un married and school friends.rip to their souls and let such accidents be avoided.there is a rule for lrries and mini lories to have guard rails at both sides and back to avoid such incidents,if this issue is highlighted then the lorry guys sure would be in a ditch,
