# Car overtaking

A passenger car travels at a speed of 30 m/s, and before it travels freight truck that drives at a constant speed of 10 m/s. Within 30 meters of the truck, the driver of the car finds out that the truck can not overtake. That's why it starts braking with an acceleration of 5 m/s. Will cars collide? If so, how big were the car's speeds at the collision?
