kscarbel2 Posted February 10, 2019 Share Posted February 10, 2019 Volvo Trucks Australia / January 28, 2019 On the open road in the Pilbara, an in-cabin camera captured live footage of Volvo’s safety features in action. It records the moment one of our Volvo FH16 60 metre Quad Roadtrain trucks travelling at 85km/hr collides head on with a detached trailer from a road-train travelling in the opposite direction. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that a live crash has been captured globally in a Volvo truck. The driver demonstrated exceptional professionalism and respect for other road users by alerting other operators by radio of the impending danger they were approaching, including the detached trailer. The driver stayed alert and was able to walk away from the incident unharmed. . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
