When worlds Fórmula Trucks collide – Click above to watch video after the jump

Bruno Junqueira, veteran of both Formula One and IndyCar, is now racing in Brazil's spectacular Fórmula Truck series. Along with moving to a larger series comes larger accidents.

According to reports, Bruno lost his brakes just before a turn on the Interlagos circuit, causing him to run straight into a back of another competitor's truck, with the collision sending him airborne and into the other cab. The result was king-sized carnage and, thankfully – shockingly – only minor injuries for Junqueira and no injuries for Diumar Bueno, the racer whose truck was decabitated. Follow the jump for the stunning video footage.

      Wow, epic crash.

      Mount: unsuccessful.

      The cabin detached the chassis in case the engine bursts into flame. It's good! It's a safety feature!

        While I agree that Bruno is an Indycar veteren, I'd hardly call him an F1 veteren. A Formula 3000 veteren? Yes.

      That reporter was unbelievably inconsiderate. Not even 10 seconds out of the truck and Bruno's being interrogated. He barely got a chance to wave to his fans.

      That was a spectacular, and spectacularly lucky, crash.

      I wonder if the slanted fifth wheel on the tractor has anything to do with that? Perhaps they need to put hooks on the fifth wheel to slow down overrunning trucks!!

      It is true; if it has wheels, it can and will be raced.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'd watch this over nascar.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Amazing! I thought for sure that would be fatal.
