Harley struck a car when changing lanes, then braked and swerved - colliding with a semi-trailer truck.
Robinson's recommended the Transport Ministry requires semi-trailers to have a form of bumper designed to protect an impacting vehicle getting wedged underneath.
The devices are currently only required on towing trucks with a full trailer.
