The vehicle ultimately responsible for the accident is probably the truck who was unable to stop in time.

Nah, the Benz no questions asked.

Coming to a complete halt for no reason (no, roadrage or "teaching a lesson to gtfo of the way" are not valid reasons) caused it. Unfortunately we don't have a rear view to the entire thing but we can assert the highway has been fairly empty and there was no immediate need for the truck driver to assume needing to come to a fast stop while traffic was flowing just fine and there being no "cluster of cars ahead breaking". Also right when the impact happens, we see a white car just infront of the truck, pulling from far right to middle, may also "just" have been ninja evading to the right as the truck was, presumably, jerking to the right seeing the retard situation infront of him.

 

 

Buuuuut, it's a Benz driver, so off he goes.

When people spend so much money on the MB then see in the cinema or if they go on holiday the same make and model being used as a taxi especialy in Germany is it any surprise they get bad tempered. I cover mine during the day and only drive it at night to save any embarrassment.

Just another 'I am entitled' because of my car.

??????

they lease it they dont buy it. They eat noodles at every meal to be able to pay the18k lease.

Bit of a generalisation there.

You may be not far wrong. A good few years ago a neighbour had a new merc. He drove it only for the first week of every month. Later I found out he could afford one tank of gas after pay day, after that ran out the car sat there for 3 weeks.

Logic, cause and effect and critical thinking all passed Thailand by. Therefore the only consideration is "I'm always right, never ever wrong; it's never my fault; and never my responsibility. And they will make absurd comments to prove that!

My mate got rear ended a few weeks ago, luckily not too much damage, and the driver wanted to blame him for slowing down too fast because of another accident/traffic jam further ahead.

mercs fault, stopping on expressway for no reason is illegal, being p*ssed off because a driver didnt move quick enough is no reason. He didnt do it once but twice in 2 different lanes, many  thai drivers  really need to learn they are not gods and the same laws apply to them, this happens all the time. I had a merc driver flash me on a highway as I was moving into the right lane to pass a bus that was not going all that fast, I had indicated before  hand, I was doing 100k and the merc was a fair distance behind me. I passed the bus and indicated and moved back over as the merc passed and he did the same as the video, he swerved hard left in front of me and hit the brakes. I kind of half expected the idiot to do something like that as I have seen them do it many times so was ready and simply moved back into the right lane, the bus coming up behind us nearly took the merc out like the truck in the vid and the merc driver lost it into the gravel shoulder and started to swing around, I couldnt stop laughing. Never saw him again so dont know what happened but these idiots need to wake up to themselves, they dont own the roads and everyone is entitled to use them legally. Hopefully the police will grab the merc driver and fine him as well as take his licence for causing all this in the first place.

1) The Dash-Cam car was in the outside lane 'slowing' other traffic. 

- While this is not illegal, its careless of others it could be argued that this is the route cause, but not the blame. 

 

2) The Mercedes driver has an anger issue - His actions were deliberate and potentially fatal. 

- The Mercedes driver was the deliberate and direct cause of the accident. 

 

3) The Truck hit an object from behind and was driving without the correct level off attention. 

- The Truck is also to blame for the accident. 

 

 

Both the Mercedes and the Truck need to be held accountable. IMO the the Mercedes driver deliberately caused an accident and should receive a more severe penalty of Dangerous driving than the truck who was driving without due care and attention.

Wrong. Benz Driver has criminal behaviour with its necessity and and live treatening disability. Truckdriver inattentiv. If you claim, the Cam Driver is to blame, I doubt your Drivingskills. Beware to meet you on the Road.

This driver is clearly hogging the 'overtaking'  lane far too long at a relatively low speed and completely oblivious to the situation.

 

They had plenty time and opportunity  to have moved over into the middle lane way before the event.

 

The MB driver no doubt was tailgating and flashing lights for them to move over and understandable got very frustrated. (who of you hasn't in this situation ) , 

 

In no way does this condom the dangerous and irresponsible  subsequent behavior of the MB driver.

 

The truck driver was no doubt half asleep and failed to notice the stopped cars in time.
