#15- BMW Sandwiched Between Two Cement Trucks.
Getting literally sandwiched between two cement trucks makes you rethink how precious and fleeting life is and for two people in the Guangdong Province in China, this was the sad reality of their day turned horror. Last year around early February, CCTV footage surfaced after an accident that showed a cement truck losing its brakes and slamming smack dab behind a BMW. The BMW in turn was pushed forward into another cement truck he was following killing both the driver and the passenger instantly.
The suspicious nature of the accident has many people questioning if the entire thing was staged and if what was captured was an actual planned out murder. The driver of the truck insists that he’s innocent and that his brakes lost pressure.
Other Chinese citizens even went as far as to blame the BMW for slamming on his brakes in an attempt to stop a cement truck bearing down on him. A quick bit of steering input and a change of direction could’ve saved both their lives.
One thing is for sure, many Chinese citizens agreed that government regulations are lax on large sized commercial vehicles and more scrutiny into their maintenance must be taken cared for on a routine basis.
