bobdiva posted a topic in NewsA truly horrific footage has shown how a lorry driver ploughed into stationary traffic after he fell asleep at the wheel. According to Metro UK, Mariusz Wlazlo, a 47-year-old man, was jailed after he drove his fully-laden HGV into two cars at 43mph on a busy motorway. The Polo driver, a woman in her 50s, spent weeks in hospital where she was treated for broken ribs and fractures to vertebrae. The Toyota driver also had to be treated in hospital for back and neck pain. Police released footage of the crash to show the dangers of not paying attention on the road. At the scene, Wlazlo told police: 'I think I went to sleep for a moment. 'I can't explain as I don't remember. It was like a dream.' Dashcam footage from the lorry and from another nearby car shows how Wlazlo, who was an agency driver behind the wheel of an Eddie Stobart vehicle at the time, was speeding up at the time of the impact. Wlazlo was in a 40mph zone of the southbound M6 between junction 8 and junction 7, near Great Barr, Birmingham, at the time of impact. The M6 southbound was closed for 90 minutes after the crash, which happened at around 9.40pm on March 15 this year. Wlazlo, who held a full, clean UK driving licence and had no record of motoring offences in his home country of Poland, admitted causing serious injury by dangerous driving and was jailed for 16 months at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Wednesday. Wkazlo, of Speke, Liverpool, was also banned from driving for three years and eight months, and ordered to take an extended re-test. PC Gareth Phillips, of the Central Motorway Police Group, said: 'The collision has had a devastating impact on the victim in the Polo. 'Although she has made a physical recovery, she now feels unable to drive on the motorway. 'It shows just how important it is to keep fully focussed on the road and surrounding conditions, and to always abide by the speed limit as displayed on gantry signs.
Die-Hard Criminal? This Man Has Stolen 120 TV Sets While Checking Into Different Hotels Over 4 Months
bobdiva posted a topic in ViralVasudev Nanaiah, a 37-year-old Indian man who actually made a career out of, taking off with more than 120 TV sets from hotels over a period of four months, has been nabbed. According to Oddity Central, Vasudev Nanaiah was arrested last month and charged with 21 counts of theft after wreaking havoc among budget hotels in southern India by stealing an impressive number of TV sets from the rooms he booked. The TV pilferer would reserve the rooms be telephone, and always make a small advance payment, informing the staff that he would be staying there for several days, in order to avoid suspicion. Nanaiah always arrived with bulky suitcases in tow, and in case they proved too small for the targeted TVs, he would simply go out and buy new ones. Police say that the Indian thief would confuse hotel staff by repeatedly walking in and out of the establishment carrying his suitcase, on various pretexts, that they never suspected that at one point he would just walk out and not come back. "He would walk in and out of the hotel on some pretext so many times that the hotel reception would not realize when he had walked out with the TV set never to return," police deputy commissioner Chetan Singh Rathor said. Nanaiah never raised any suspicion in hotel personnel, who describe him as "decent and well-behaved." Interestingly, the sticky-fingered hotel guest was first arrested in October, after being caught red-handed, but was released on bail. Instead of changing his ways, the man wasted no time picking up where he'd left off, getting back to business within days of his release. Unfortunately for Vasudev, police were keeping an eye on him, and busted him again last month while trying to fence some of the stolen TV sets. "We arrested him earlier this month when he was trying to sell TV sets to a shopkeeper, who alerted the police," Bangalore police said, adding that about 20 TV sets had been recovered. The investigation also revealed that Nanaiah had stolen about 100 TVs from hotels in the neighboring states of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. Nanaiah told police that making off with the sets was "relatively low risk and easy." Stealing 120 hotel TV sets in just 4 months sounds pretty impressive but it appears that it's only the latest achievement in a very long and lucrative criminal career. Vasudev Nanaiah admitted to stealing hotel TV's for over 12 years, and Bangalore police sources believe that he may have stolen and sold over 1,000 TVs during that period. If found guilty by the court, Nanaiah's days of his thieving days may finally come to an end, or at least put on hiatus for a long time. He may also be ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation.
