This tragic accident happened on March 18, 2013 at around 9:30 am in the city of Yekaterinburg, at the intersection of Deryabin with the Svetlorechensky Bypass in Russia. 59 year old driver of Toyota Carib got in the way of a truck, got t-boned and died on the spot.
33 year old driver of MAZ truck loaded with bricks was travelling at a legal speed of 60 km/h and attempted to brake and swerve to the side but trucks are not as easily manoeuvrable which made the collision unavoidable. It was reported that at the time of the accident, traffic lights that control the flow of traffic through the intersection were down.
The saddest part is that in a strange twist of irony, the deceased driver was en route to his father’s funeral. Fate has a wicked sense of humor.
