What Happens to a Second Generation Suzuki Alto When Hit By a Truck?
Published April 2, 2013
The Second Generation Suzuki Alto went into production in China in 1988 and was one of the first cars available to private Chinese buyers, hence it was a popular vehicle. Several manufacturers copied the Alto and sold it under their own name which made them a popular sight on Chinese roads and still make them, but they arent sturdy vehicles at all judging by the below Alto-Pancake.
Yesterday evening at 6pm this Alto ceased to be a car and became a two meter square sheet of steel after a truck carrying sand simply went over it at a traffic light in Mianzhu City, Sichuan Province. Media reports indicate that the Alto was waiting patiently at a traffic ligth when a large sized truck carrying sand came up behind it too fast attempted to brake but hit the grassy central reservation causing the truck to roll over squashing the Alto and killing the driver in the process.
The truck driver has been arrested by the police pending an inquiry.
