This incident seem strange. Look like truck was moving from left to right from pilot’s perspective so there are like 2 possible causes. One, truck didn’t wait for plane to pass and tried to beat plane, but got flipped by right wing. Two, truck was legally crossing the taxiway and maybe mechanical issue caused it to slow down unexpectedly that pilot couldn’t stop in time. If 2nd cause was the case, pilot should have seen truck crossing and should have waited for him to get far away from taxiway before moving. Still through I wasn’t there to see the incident in person so all I can do is just to imagine how hell it happened.



Um, did you mean I’m glad anyone didn’t get severe injury
