guess Lorry=semi-truck


A lorry is any large heavy-duty commercial road vehicle. Basically, anything that isn't a bus/coach and is bigger than a van.

You might also hear people from the UK calling something an 'artic'. It's short for 'articulated lorry', i.e. a lorry that bends around a joint rather than being wholly rigid. I think that's what you'd call a semi-truck. Seperate cab and trailer sections, right?

I've no idea why you call them trucks and we call them lorries. So I'll look it up.

Hmm...etymology of 'lorry' is uncertain. Possibly from 'lurry', a word that fell out of use long ago and means 'to pull'. 'Truck' goes way back to an ancient Greek work meaning 'wheel' and is an older term for a vehicle in the UK. 'Truck' was replaced by 'lorry' after the American revolution, which explains why 'lorry' isn't used there.

Lorry on the motorway, not semi on the highway! Tsk tsk tsk! ;)

The truck shouldnt be blamed though, quite a high blind spot, and the little car probably cut in too close.

@LameName that would be because it happened in England where we use 999, only needs one button three times, even simple people like you can manage that

For those of you who are too lazy to do a bit of research before "shopped" trolling...

It is raining, so I can see why there is very little/no tire smoke, but considering the truck's a cabover, I find it very hard to believe the driver didn't notice the car at all, or the extra drag from it.
