The truck, taking pipes to a pipeline project close by, had to suddenly apply the brakes to avoid an animal straying on to the road. The driver was killed instantly, his body found in two parts, the bottom half in his seat, the top half inside the pipe. The co-driver was impaled on a second pipe, forced through the windscreen and was found dead 17meters ahead of the truck.
This is a grim reminder of how a simple safety precaution if ignored can lead to such terrible accidents, often unbelievable. No other vehicle was involved!
