Video: It's brake failure as truck smashes into five vehicles - 8 year old in serious condition

A truck driver said that the brakes failed on his truck/trailer as his rig smashed into a Toyota Fortuner and several other vehicles on a downward stretch of Khao Chong Tako in Sa Kaeo province.

The accident was caught on dash cam from a vehicle coming up the hill.

Banjong Noysing, 48, said he is always seeing accidents but never thought it would happen to him. He had bought his Fortuner just two months ago.

 

 

His son Thanakorn is in ICU with a fractured skull after his face was cut open from mouth to ear.

His pregnant wife is recovering. Several other people in the other pick-ups damaged were also recovering.

The dash camk footage showed several fellow motorists help to put the Fortuner back on its wheels. 

The matter is being investigated by Ta Praya police and insurance assessors. Daily News said the driver of the truck said it was brake failure - there was no air in the brakes.

brake failure ...

 

I am fed up with this

 

it is either brain failure or caused by boiling the brakes by not  using low gear, as BBG stated

 

oh, wait - that's brain failure, too

I'm glad the footage ended where it did... I could just imagine the car rolling off the road and plunging down a ravine !!!

Hope the wee fella recovers...

Whatever the reason the truck was going at a breakneck speed in what looks like heavy traffic ... no excuses.

Those trucks are equipped with a dual-circuit brake system, which means, there could be no failure due to no air inside the pressure container. It only could be worn out brake-linings and the lack of proper maintenance.

How could he be travelling at that speed when all the other traffic is going at a snail's pace?

He was speeding along merrily and suddenly caught up to a traffic jam and had no time to react. As far as brake failure - easy enough to check after the fact. If the brakes fail, they do not repair themselves after the crash. It's time that the authorities put an end to this excuse by confirming if brakes have failed and adding extra charges for the driver if he is really just lying about it.

Horrifying for the Fortuner family. Hope they all recover. As for the truck driver, he was speeding, and/or driving negligently. Should be imprisoned, and his truck company if indeed it was brake failure caused by no regular maintenance.

Nothing will change. Profit and selfishness above everything else.
