When heavy vehicles are involved, the consequences of a road crash can be devastating, as a recent incident in Melbourne has proven.
A man in his thirties is fighting for his life in hospital after a horrific crash involving 11 vehicles.
Several other people including a school-aged girl are also in hospital after being seriously injured in the 11 car crash on one of Melbourne’s busiest arterial roads.
According to police, the crash occurred when a truck collided with multiple cars and a traffic light on Ring Road.
The truck crossed six or seven lanes and smashed into about 8 vehicles.
The crash left debris scattered across the road and one vehicle was left wedged in the truck’s front.
In addition to a passenger in the first car who is critical in hospital, there were 7 other people injured including the truck driver.
Two people had to be rescued after becoming trapped in another car. See more at http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/eight-injured-in-11car-crash-involving-truck-on-melbournes-ring-road-at-fawkner-20171211-h02prg.html
