UPDATE: N1 HORROR CRASH
People are asking what actually happened. The exact details are being investigated but in essence there was a back up of traffic from an accident up front. The truck which ploughed into the cars and the two trucks in this backed up traffic queue came round the bend and wasn't able to stop. Speculation of it speeding or having brake failure is, at this stage, just that - speculation. I don't think it had anything to with faulty brakes. Maybe speed or maybe the driver ran out of braking distance from the bend to the backed up queue. Here is a video taking you onto the scene where FleetWatch editor Patrick O'Leary talks to one of the drivers whose truck was hit.

Feb 11th: Can you believe that the driver of this truck which smashed into a number of cars and then into two trucks on the N1 north just past the 14th Avenue onramp yesterday escaped this wreck without a scratch - and I mean not one little scratch. I was on the scene and will report more detail later but it was not 'brakes failed' as has been widely reported.
