Explanation: Hi; this is a little difficult to translate because 'ferragens' literally means the ironwork/bodywork of the truck. But, let's imagine there was an accident and the motorist hit a large tree. When the impact happened the motorist would be trapped in the mangled/crushed cabin of the truck, unable to escape. He wouldn't be trapped in the bodywork as such of the truck; how could he be?
I wouldn't use "bodywork/metalwork" in this context.
