Home Video Shows Oblivious Tractor Trailer Driver After Hitting Car

Some startling video involving a British tractor trailer crash has surfaced and is making its way around the internet. The video is from a cell phone camera and shows a tractor trailer that has just hit a smaller passenger car and is dragging it down the road. The more unsettling fact is that the truck driver seems to be completely unaware he has hit anything and continues without stopping. The video can be seen here.

The video lasts only a few seconds and doesn’t show how long the car was dragged or what happened at the end of the accident. You can clearly see the truck’s logo for a company called Arclid Transport.

According to a BBC News report, the accident actually occurred in January and was investigated as a simple collision at the time. Neither the driver of the car or the tractor trailer was seriously injured. No action was taken against the driver of the truck.

Since the footage of this commercial truck accident has surfaced, though, authorities are reopening the investigation.

Tractor trailers are large vehicles that, when fully loaded, can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Despite this, one would hope that an experienced truck driver would be able to tell if he has hit another car. The video is brief and doesn’t show how long the car was being dragged, but from what we do see it is clear that the driver makes no attempt to stop for at least the 20 seconds shown in the video.

Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured in the truck crash, but everyday in the United States there are accidents where people aren’t so lucky. If the accident is the fault of a negligent driver or trucking company, the incident should be investigated to hold them accountable and help prevent similar occurrences in the future. Contact a truck accident lawyer if you or someone you love has been involved in an accident with a tractor trailer.
