In the middle of a bad trip, he loses control of his truck… because of a bird of prey!

A French truck driver under narcotics lost control of his vehicle when a nozzle entered his cabin

The flapping wings of a bird can cause a lot of harm. Especially when driving a truck under the influence of narcotics. Last Thursday a truck driver completely panicked when he saw a buzzard heading towards him. After giving a big swerve, his truck ended up completely stuck in a ditch.

A little bird knocks down a big truck

Last Thursday, in the Lot (France), a raptor proved that the reason of the strongest is not always the best. Who would have imagined that a buzzard could knock over a truck several tons? However, this is what happened, in the middle of the day, on a departmental road. In this kind of accident, we rather think of speeding or alcohol. But this time it’s a animal of a few centimeters which was enough to cause an accident.

While driving with the window open, the truck driver was surprised by a bus who entered the passenger compartment of his vehicle. Completely frightened, he reacted in the worst possible way by directing his heavy weight into the ditch. After going there, the gendarmes of the motorized brigade noted with astonishment the unusual cause of the accident.

More fear than harm for the raptor, who is in good health and was taken care of by the falconers of Rocamadour Eagle Rock.

According to The Dispatchthe driver, a 43-year-old Corrézien, came out unscathed from theaccident. However, he had his license revoked because he tested positive for narcotics.

The story goes around the networks

Even if it can make you smile, this accident could have caused more serious victims. Under the article published on the Facebook account of the gendarmerie concerned, Internet users preferred to smile:

“The good thing is that the nozzle pulled a speeder out of traffic! » or “It must be weird to find yourself with a nozzle in the cabin. I’ve hit one in the past and the sight was terrible and so was the impact…” or “For once, this driver is unlucky. What was the probability of seeing a buzzard enter his truck? »
