Even if you follow the traffic rules and regulations down to the letter, nobody can be truly safe when driving on the road.
Warning: graphic images
Dashcam footage shows the horrific moment a large articulated truck came smashing through a row of cars after running a red light at high speed. Known as the 2013 Pinetown crash, the container-loaded truck barreled through the intersection of Richmond and Josiah Gumede Roads in South Africa hitting several vehicles in the gruesome accident.
The driver claimed his truck’s brakes failed, losing control as it descended down the notorious Field’s Hill towards the intersection, killing 27 people and injuring 88.
The 23-year-old driver from Swaziland was later taken to court on multiple charges, including homicide and reckless driving, and was sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to all charges.
