Fire truck rolled over in front of schoolchildrenSeptember 23, 2019
Not always the actions of rescue services go smoothly, and there are annoying oversights. And a fresh example is the recent demonstration of firefighters in the Hungarian city of Vac, which ended in an accident. The fire truck was in such a hurry to fire – in this case, to eliminate the fire of the car, that it could not stand on wheels and capsized. The car lay on its side and drove a few meters.
It is good that none of the crew was injured. The goals remained and the audience – and this is a few dozen schoolchildren. After the accident, the fire truck was put on wheels and evacuated with a 50-ton Liebherr fire truck crane.
By the way, the overturned fire truck was built on a Renault Midlum 4 × 4 all-wheel drive chassis with an engine of 290 hp. Euro 5 standard. It is not surprising that such a car with a gross weight of 16 with an increased ground clearance and an increased center of gravity heels more in turns than rear-wheel drive counterparts. Although you can flip any car …
Interestingly, the Renault Midlum 4×4 chassis was assembled in Hungary at the famous RABA axle factory. Back in 2014, Renault Defense signed an agreement with a Hungarian company for the supply of 60 car kits for large-site assembly for rescue vehicles. Special equipment for a car with a 4000 l water tank was made by the local company BM Heros from Budapest.
