Someone was looking down on him that day. Makes you realise how vulnerable we are in the cab....

Amazingly enough this is not the only case of cab decapitation that I have heard about; one of the lads who plays for one of the local pool teams drives for Parcel Line and he survived a similar incident where the Merc truck he was driving suffered a front wheel blow out causing it to jack-knife and take the cab clean off the truck.
One minute he was happily driving down the M6 the next there he was sat in the cab that was completely removed from the truck; just the worse for a few bruises. :shock:

I was told a story by a driver at Weldon Plant, a few years back. IIRC it was a gentleman called John Nichol, who'd been with Weldon from the start. He was driving a Volvo F or FL7, 8 wheel tipper, along the A43 between Kettering and Northampton when he was involved in a RTC. A car had pulled out onto the main road forcing other vehicles to take avoiding action. He said the cab detached from the chassis and ended up in a field some yards from the road. He was still sitting in the driving seat holding the wheel when it came to rest, somehow remaining upright!
