    Probe As Video Shows Lorry Shunt Car At 60mph


    Amazing footage of a lorry careering at 60mph along a motorway with a car trapped sideways on its front bumper has sparked an investigation.

    http://news.sky.com/sky-news/content/StaticFile/jpg/2010/Mar/Week3/15576177.jpg

    The video shows a trucker thundering along the A1(M) near Wetherby, West Yorkshire, seemingly oblivious to the car under its cab.


    See the video her on SKY news and full details..

    At least the driver in the car was ok..the question is... how did the car get there and the tucker not notice!!


    Rick

    that is insane, how the hell did he not notice it...

    probs doin a murder in the cab and took his eye off the road for a few min?

    Imagine being stuck in that Clio, i wonder how long it went on for?

    You would have thought the tyres would have dug into the road a bit more or totally wore away to the rims but there doesn't seem to be many sparks.

    Scary stuff for both parties.

    Saves on petrol.

    i like how the car has got its brake lights on

    :-D:w00t:

    Probably a polish driver!!

    Bet them Clio tyres were bald as hell after that little ride lol

    Why? do they do this a lot in Poland then? :x

    Dunno how you wouldn't be horrified at seeing this. Why isn't the car beeping, passers by beeping, anything to bring attention to the HGV driver? And how the hell did that happen in the 1st place? Unreal, in all fairness i think i would of needed new pants after it.

    Maybe he was having a sleep, give the truck driver a break he probably works long hours for little pay. ;-):oops:

    What makes it worse is it could possibly be a fuel tanker.

    edit: don't think it was.

    I wonder what a clip like that is worth as it seems to be the only one.

    As i said above.. the question is how and why did he not notice..

    Could have been though.

    At least the insurance claim would of been easy.

    Maybe it's his ex?

    It's a longshot.. but (bare with me here) perhaps the prostitute the lorry driver was trying to murder had gotten into that car some way back...?

    Couple of online forums reckon its a spoof....

    but as per Sky News :-

    The haulage company - Arclid Transport - has confirmed that the video is … The haulage company - Arclid Transport - has confirmed that the video is not a hoax and that the lady driver in the Clio "got out and walked away".

    I thought spoof as there is no traffic in front or beside it, as if it's been given a clear road to go down. It is probably real though.

    Hoax Hoax Hoax Hoax Hoax Hoax

    Why Wouldnt The Car Move
    Wind Resistance Would Move It
    Or Why Didnt Car Drive Away

    Hoax Hoax Hoax Hoax Hoax

    WHY WAS IT BEING FILMED
    how did they know it was coming

    just like top gear a camera just happens to be there when something goes wrong

    :? Thats mad:?

    i see its raining, wet road, car probably spun and somehow timed it perfectly to get caught in front of passing lorry. As road is wet, there is little sound of tyres screeching so lorry driver doesnt notice. you dont drive watching your bumper do you? rather look into the distance some what. car driver didnt beep because probably in a state of shock.
    seems believable to me this did actually happen

    i love that this is posted in the travel section lol

    I dont know a single person including my nana, who doesnt have a camera phone
    and isnt top gear a tv show? prob a few cameras lurkin about if you ask me like

    Can't believe the woman driving the lorry didn't see the car..........She must have been doing her make up:?

    tbh i dont how the car managed to get in that position in the first place?

    I'm calling hoax.. from the video, it's probably a group of students in the car.. and although I'm probably generalising quite a bit, the car was going very slow compared to the truck? Not many students will be driving that much slower... Very few drivers would be going that slowly...

    I didn't mean the driver of the car stuck to the truck; I meant the driver of the car where the video was filmed from...

    If the truck was doing 60mph, then the car is probably doing 40/50mph.. quite slow for a motorway..

    the car from where its being filmed appears to be on a slip road, so speed is normal. nothing unusual apart from the car being pushed by a lorry!
