A collision between a truck and a car at a suburban intersection led to a furious debate about who was to blame.

The car was overtaken by the large truck with its turn signal – and both vehicles tried to turn left at the crossroads at the same time.

When they came around the corner, the truck visibly scraped the side of the car.
NS Brooks Chief Inspector Phil Brooks said the car was wrong and should have left.

Many believed that the car had failed, since it should have given way to the truck with its indicators on.
“The car (had failed). The truck already indicated that it was going to the right before the strip car left the curb. Unsafe start of the car, “one person wrote.
Others thought that both vehicles could have managed the situation better.
“Truck driver does not overlook the lane and is a driver, who has driven in traffic and is unaware of the traffic that is catching up with him, can turn left,” said a person.
