Default Truck driver pushes car down road


Apparently someone was in the car the whole time too...

News story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...re/8574609.stm

Dramatic footage has emerged of a lorry apparently pushing a car sideways along a motorway in Yorkshire.

The footage, which was posted on YouTube, shows the truck travelling along the A1(M) near Wetherby with the Clio trapped in front.

The scene was filmed on a mobile phone by another motorist.

West Yorkshire Police confirmed it had attended the scene. The lorry owner, Cheshire-based Arclid Transport, said it was investigating the incident.

At one point in the footage someone can be heard shouting: "He hasn't seen it."

A spokesman from Arclid Transport said: "There was an incident between a car and one of our vehicles in January.

"Since seeing the footage from YouTube we are investigating."

He added that he believed the female driver of the Clio had not been injured in the incident.

The company said the lorry driver was sent home on Wednesday, when the video emerged on the internet.

He added that the accident happened on 13 January and police had investigated, but to date no action had been taken against the lorry driver.

West Yorkshire Police said officers attended the scene after receiving reports of a collision.

A spokesman said: "At the time of our attendance there were no injuries and both vehicles were on the hard shoulder of the motorway.

"As a result, at the time, the incident was treated as a damage only collision.

"However, in light of the new evidence that has come to light we are reinvestigating the collision and the matter has today been passed to our major collision inquiry team and inquiries are ongoing."

Crazy... can't help but think maybe someone maneuvered without leaving enough room for the truck driver to see/react? Interesting to see they thought to hit the brakes....

I'd really love to know the final settlement of this and the whole story of how she got there in the first place!
