A driver involved in a fatal accident where a small truck was sandwiched between two semi-trailers was found to have lied when he said that the vehicle in front had suddenly stopped, leaving him no time to brake and avoid a collision.
Tuesday morning September 26, a 33 year-old driver of a small truck was killed after being sandwiched between two gravel trucks.
Internal video monitors from the gravel truck driver’s cabin released yesterday, showed that the driver was not paying attention to conditions ahead of his vehicle. Monitoring devices showed that the driver was speeding, looking around outside the side window, and digging around in his ear before smashing into the vehicle in front.
The driver of the gravel truck has been charged with negligent homicide and prosecutors demanded bail of NT$100,000.
