A truck hit a car in a traffic jam? So, quite obviously, the truck driver was not paying attention and slammed the car very heavily. I wonder what he was doing instead of watching the road ahead. Playing a game, texting, reading a newspaper, doing his paperwork? The list of possibilities is extensive.

The list of possibilities is extensive.

Indeed! Every time I think I've seen it all, here comes someone with something new.

So, quite obviously, the truck driver was not paying attention and slammed the car very heavily.

They showed the car with the truck's body halfway up it's rear. If there were passengers in the back seat of the car, I doubt they survived.

This is a typical inemuri unten, meaning falling asleep or sleepy driving. Very dangerous but happens most of the time especially for tired truck drivers driving long distances. Happens also to ordinary drivers, both young and old and all genders. That’s the reason why we have parking and rest areas on highways (free). Let’s utilize them and drive safely.
