    A Coca-Cola truck driver cuts off a motorcycle rider and in doing so at a very high speed crosses an intersection when the light is turning red. In the process it takes out a Mercedes SLK 55 roadster with an elder man driving the car.

    I am just glad the old man was unhurt, the SLK is one safe little roadster.

    He did look Shaken Up. I guess they had to wait a while before unscrewing the top.

    That was a massive thump considering the mass, speed and lack of braking. Very impressive safety outcome.

    I notice how much of the load was lost on the road and that can only mean the truck came really close to tipping over.

    The truck was braking from the very first time we see it...but it didn't seem to slow down.

    Could easily have been very nasty , had there been a passenger .

    As with the others , I'd have been fizzing had that happened to my car . The trucker was driving like a coke-head .

    Well the SLK will prob be scrapped and used to make coke cans

    Just like the front of the Irn Bru truck it says the Bru must get thru, looks like the coke did get thru.
