Serious accident that occurred this past Wednesday at the Santa Apolonia Container Terminal in Lisbon.


From a friend in Portugal, Blueoceana Company has received word of a serious accident that occurred this past Wednesday at the Santa Apolonia Container Terminal in Lisbon.
Our understanding, is that an over-the-road truck driver sideswiped (apparently at significant speed) a yard tractor moving with an empty chassis. While it looks like a failure to yield the right of way at an intersection (see attached photos), we won't hazard a guess. 
Our source indicates that, miraculously, there were no injuries. Had the collision occurred on the operator's side of the yard tractor, the result would have likely been fatal.

Seja cuidadoso para fora lá!
