  1. Do people think they are alone on earth? Why the newlywed couple decided to stop in a tunnel to celebrate the start of a new family? Do stupid things win stupid prizes like every asshole on earth. Sry but that deserves no compassion. And the truck driver is the most stupid human being he not even brake he just let the truck get stoped by the force of the cars cars what a morron.

  2. In an accident, it’s almost always a combination of two or more factors. Here, the wedding procession stopped in a tunnel + the truck driver not slowing down upon entering the tunnel/upon unable to see what’s up ahead at the bend. If either one – – the wedding procession not stopping OR the truck driver slowing down upon entering the tunnel = no lives would have been lost. The truck driver was going quite fast and his reaction time to seeing something ahead was a tad too slow. If he was going at say 100kmph, it would have taken 40-50m to come to a complete halt. The tunnel may not have been that advanced to display an alert to those entering (e.g. “Blockage ahead”, etc.) so something like this was implemented, it could have also helped a lot.

    All in all, this could have been easily avoided if each did their part but what’s done is done. RIP to the one that didn’t make it.
