“Smart” Toyota Corolla saved the lives of people in a monstrous accidentJune 26, 2020
Recently, a dramatic accident occurred in the vicinity of Prague. The new generation Toyota Corolla was crushed between the two trucks, but the driver and passenger of the car miraculously survived.
After the Corolla literally turned into a “cake”, the driver and passenger had practically no chance to escape. However, everything turned out very differently – the new automated emergency call system eCall, which is integrated into all new Toyota cars, played a role.
When an accident occurred, the system automatically reported this to the rescue services, sending them data on the geolocation of the car. And after a while, there were doctors and rescuers at the scene of the accident, who cut the car body and removed the victims from it. According to autosalon.tv, it all took 40 minutes to complete.
After that, the passenger was taken to the hospital by helicopter, and the Corolla driver was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
According to preliminary information, the Toyota driver is not to blame for the accident. His car was in the convoy during the blow – a truck crashed into the Corolla from behind, which “sealed” it to another wagon. The truck driver is accused of gross violation of traffic rules, which led to an accident with serious bodily harm.
