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.
