Truck cabin flattened by own 40-ton cargo after braking too fast

40 tons of hot-rolled coils crushed a lorry’s cabin after the vehicle braked forcefully and rear-ended another truck.

The shocking video, filmed in Suzhou City in eastern Jiangsu Province on November 12, shows a red lorry crashing into a blue truck waiting at the traffic light after it already has an emergency brake.

Then eight big metal coils loaded on the red lorry came loose and rolled forward with the brake's momentum, flattening the cabin before dropping onto the road.

The lorry driver was sent to hospital for treatment. He suffered injuries to his chest and head, but his condition was not life-threatening.
