A woman had an incredibly lucky escape when she survived this horrific crash.
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.’
Stuart Hunt, who was first on the scene, said: ‘We called the police but we did not know there was a car in the middle until we went and had a look. The car was destroyed – I thought the driver was a gonner.’
A 51-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, causing a serious injury collision and on suspicion of being under the influence of drink and drugs.
