Her VW Golf was squeezed under a lorry in front when she was shunted by a skip lorry behind her.

Witnesses to the collision in Colchester, Essex, said that the car was so crushed that they didn’t even realise a car had been involved.

The 27-year-old woman was taken to Royal London Hospital to be treated for her injuries that are not thought to be life-threatening.

Sergeant Damon Bainbridge said: ‘It is extremely unlikely to get a survivor in a crash like this. If they did survive, we would expect them to have life threatening or life changing injuries.

‘It goes to show what a difference the quality of vehicle construction can make and what else can I call it except luck.’
