A dramatic car accident happened at a viaduct on National Highway 1. A truck head was seen hung in the air after the large truck crashed into the guardrail. It then got stuck on the edge of the lane, with the driver stuck inside.

After receiving the report, firefighters dispatched a ladder truck and immediately started the rescue. The driver was still conscious when rescued, but suffered multiple injuries on his face and body. His eyes closed tightly and were in tremendous pain.

Chang Hung-chieh, Highway 3 Traffic Team Leader, National Highway Police:"There is a large truck carrying feed on the ramp that hit the outer guardrail. That caused the car's front to be stuck outside the guardrail, which is still connected to the body."

The accident occurred at 6am on the 8th. A large truck loaded with feed lost control on the north exit of No. 1 National Highway's Changhua System Interchange. The car's front hung over the edge of the highway, which was quite dangerous. Fortunately, the driver suffered only minor injuries. His vital signs were stable after being sent to the hospital.

Chang Hung-chieh, Highway 3 Traffic Team Leader, National Highway Police:"We closed three lanes going south, and the inner lane going north on Highway 1 to carry out the rescue."

After the police arrived at the scene, they closed the southbound three lanes and the northbound's inner lane on Highway 1 to carry out the recovery but these lane closures caused traffic to be blocked for about 2 to 3 kilometers. The cause and details of the accident still await police investigation. 

 

 

遠遠就能看到,有輛大貨車,撞上護欄後,卡在車道邊緣,車頭懸掛半空中,搖搖欲墜,場面險象環生,而駕駛更受困車內 ,動彈不得。

警消獲報後,出動雲梯車,立刻展開救援,而駕駛救出時,還有意識,但臉部和身上多處受傷,雙眼緊閉,表情痛苦。

國道三隊交通組警務員兼組長 張弘杰表示:「在匝道中,有一輛載運飼料的大貨車,那撞擊了外側的護欄,那導致車頭卡在那個護欄外面,跟車身尚有連結。」

自撞護欄事故,發生在8號清晨6點多,載滿飼料的大貨車,行經國道1號,彰化系統交流道北向出口,疑似不慎失控衝撞護欄,車頭更懸掛國道高架邊緣,相當危險,所幸,駕駛只受輕傷,送醫後,目前生命徵象穩定。

國道三隊交通組警務員兼組長 張弘杰表示:「我們封閉了國一南向的三線車道,還有國一北向內側車道,來進行警戒跟處理。」

就怕車頭下墜,波及下方國道南向車輛,警方到場後,緊急封閉南向三線車道,國一北向則管制內車道警戒,並同步進行車頭吊掛作業,卻也造成車流回堵約2到3公里,至於,詳細肇事原因,還有待警方調查釐清。
