Haifa collision truck driver: 'My brakes were gone'
The driver of the truck that was involved in the multiple-vehicle collision on the road between Haifa and the Checkpoint junction claimed during his police interrogation that "my brakes were gone."

 

Investigators from the police's traffic unit discovered the truck's load exceeded the amount it was legally permitted to haul, and estimate that the overweight, in addition to the driver's speeding and reckless driving, were the cause of the crash that left six people dead and an additional 16 wounded.
