    This seems very odd, a 40 ft articulated truck appears to have started to make contact with cars within the arrivals area of Terminal 1, it then progresses to the area outside Mc Donalds and hits more cars on the way, this is a distance of over 500 metres through roads which are heavily bordered on each side and would require full skill level to drive through for any driver. The explanation of a medical emergency just doesn't hold up at all, also what was an articulated truck doing at the arrivals area to start with, to even navigate within that area in error requires a high level of skill.

    Route taken, have a look at it on Street View to see required skill for 40ft truck, it's not like it would naturally follow this route...

    Initial contact points at T1 arrivals

    Finish point beyond Mc Donalds over 500 metres away...,-6.2422065/53.4286709,-6.2360134/@53.4288247,-6.241415,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!4m1!3e0
