Welding Supply Truck Crash

Unread postby david antony » Fri Jun 15, 2018 7:45 am

The two biggest causes of accidents are speeding and following too close ........
drive carefully your life may depend on it! All caught on a dash cam hiccup!!! WOW!

Have you wondered what would happen if a delivery truck carrying hazardous
materials such as oxygen and acetylene welding gas cylinders had an accident
in front of you?

View the video below for what actually happens. It's spectacular and just when
you think it's all over - it's not!!
So the next time one passes you on the road, give him lots of room.

.

That's unforgettable, David Antony.

Shouldn't such trucks be allowed on the highways between designated hours and only use a certain lane, so not to be hazardous to themselves and others? I believe some countries adapt such regulations.

Thanks for sharing,

First of all the tanks weren't even secured. Secondly, all of the valve protecting covers fell off. I've worked with these tanks before and the protecting caps don't just fall off unless they are not screwed on and/or aren't really protecting caps. I've seen cylinders like this fall out of a truck on the highway and even spark when they hit the ground. However, due to the cap being screwed on properly, nothing happened. A little bit of common sense helps when the laws aren't in place. However, I'd be willing to bet that several laws were broken which caused this accident to happen.
