AA Truck Accident

Just a little news story about Keith’s accident – everyone has been asking to see some photos of the AA Truck.

On December 14th 2014, driving home city bound on the Western Highway at Springbank after doing a tour of the Christmas lights, Keith was rear-ended by a B Double Semi-Trailer doing approximately 110kms.  The shunt from behind at first propelled Keith at an extra 20 km faster and he said it felt really exhilarating!

He then  careered on two wheels down the ditch on the side of the freeway, with grass catching in the hubs and then back onto the freeway stopping sideways in the fast lane.  With the engine still running, Keith was able to throw the AA Truck into reverse and back into safety, narrowly avoiding yet another semi who left the second set of really impressive tyre marks in the over taking lane – that you can still see today – just after the bridge at Wallace.

We didn’t include the photos of his severe bruising as it would put you off your food.  We have included some of the truck damage (it was subsequently written off by Shannons, who were fantastic by the way).  We will be pleased to show you photos of the repairs once they are completed.
