Images from a security camera recorded the moment when a harvester machine lost its brake on the way down a hill, in the city of Monte Carlo, in the Midwest of Santa Catarina. The fact occurred on Saturday afternoon (03).
According to the Fire Department, which attended the incident, the 38-year-old driver reported that he was walking down Avenida Enio Lopes Albuquerque, in a very steep section, known as “hospital hill”. When he realized that the vehicle did not obey the commands, especially the brakes, he started honking his horn in an attempt to warn people passing by.
The combine hit a car and a trailer, then toppled onto the track. The wall of a house was also hit.
The driver suffered several injuries to his body, but was taken to the hospital in a stable state. Despite the scare, there were no other victims.
