HGV crashes into Van after Idiot Volvo driver braked checked HGV

No sound. This Volvo had been brake testing me awhile. You can see at the lights he slows down then speeds up

.No sound. This Volvo had been brake testing me awhile. You can see at the lights he slows down then speeds up and slows down, The lights are on green so no reason to stop, he then goes again and then slams on, I went around him to avoid hitting him ( maybe) I was not close. Then this woman in a white van comes through the other way on red....Bang

  • Looks to me like the Volvo driver hit the brakes because he saw the van coming through the light. Obviously we don't know what's happening prior to the few seconds of footage we have and the camera doesn't swivel like a drivers head does when approaching an intersection but based on this small piece of footage i'd say Van is at fault for running a light and truck is at fault for not allowing sufficient distance to stop. Volvo appears to be the only innocent party here.

    • Yeah, agreed. From this limited POV it seems like the Volvo saw the van coming and the truck behind the Volvo was in the wrong for pulling around it into oncoming traffic. Truck driver was impatient. Should have stayed chill.

    • Yes, it was a green light, but that's meaningless. Clearly that van was coming thru no matter what and the Volvo must have seen it. Going around it like that was just stupid and begging for an accident.

  • volvo driver 100% correct. even though he had a green, he saw the white van and stopped....no point getting yourself killed saying it was my right of way. .hey

  • The Volvo driver clearly stop because the van has jumped the red light to his right.. if the Volvo hadn’t stopped he would have been hit by the van...

    The lorry driver should keep his attention on the Volvo until it clears his path then enter the roundabout safely, he clearly didn’t...

    It’s a school boy error to ram or nearly ram someone at a roundabout assuming the driver in front has gone..

    The van and lorry driver were at fault regardless of his claims from the lorry driver...!

    The Volvo driver is totally blameless...!

  • Headline should read "Butt-hurt douche blames Volvo driver for own incompetence!"

    • Ummmm are you serious? 1) the Volvo driver was clearly being a fucktard. 2) The van ran a red light. Thanks for comin' out, genius.

    • Was the Volvo stopping because he saw the van coming from the right? If anyone is at fault, it’s the truck driver for being too close to stop in an emergency.
