Dramatic video shows what happens to a car sandwiched between two trucks

We all have heard of the scary accidents when a truck rear-ends a car and sends it forward into the truck in front it. It’s never pretty and the car occupants never come out well.

A German safety company created this video showing just what happens in such an accidents, as if we couldn’t imagine it. A truck rear-ending a stopped car and sending into the back of a stopped tractor-trailer in front it. The crazy parts of this is that the second truck was traveling at only 27MPH (43km/h).

Despite their smaller appearance, European trucks have a very similar maximum weight capacity to ‘Murican rigs, so that aspect does not change. Perhaps mandating the active safety technologies seen in many modern cars on heavy trucks isn’t a bad idea?
