Big truck mount accident

9. May 2018 | Comments (0)

A large truck mounted lift crashed into traffic on the E34/N49 in Oosteeklo, Belgium on Monday.

The police suggest that the driver was travelling at a normal freeway speed, spotted the queuing traffic too late, and ploughed into a van, a car and a large milk tanker which split open and spilled its contents onto the road. The driver of the platform – a 90 metre Palfinger P900, owned by Netherlands based Collé Rental & Sales - was badly injured, although conscious. He had to be cut from his badly damaged cab and was rushed to hospital, yesterday he was mercifully reported to be in a stable condition and out of danger.

The traffic had apparently been stopped at a red light when the incident occurred. The driver of the truck mounted lift tried to swerve out of the way, but to no avail. The occupants of the other vehicles also sustained some injuries, but all were minor.
