Rest Area 300m

Thursday, August 04, 2005

This truck crashed into a bank on Mt Messenger killing the driver. It was parked behind the testing station where an investigation into the braking system is being done. A rental truck, It had automatic transmission, and was carrying several large spools of cable when it crashed. Though securely chained down they broke free on impact. I have been told that the hazard lights were on before the crash, which would indicate a problem with the truck or driver.
The wreckage was a sobering reminder that good brakes are important. Mine were brought up to spec today. They had degraded so slowly over time that I had not noticed that they needed work.
