Lorry shunts car on motorway
Incredible footage showing a truck on the A1(M) near Wetherby in Yorkshire with a car jammed under its front bumper. The truck driver obviously has no idea what is going on and continues blithely on his merry way. The police are now investigating and by all accounts the woman in the car emerged unhurt.
Your cynical old Exile is curious to know why the guy who shot this footage on his mobile 'phone then uploaded it to YouTube where anyone can get hold of it? Had he has his wits about him he could have contacted any number of news agencies who would have been only to pleased to punt the video clip on his behalf.
As it is everyone and his brother - and that includes the BBC - is freely reposting the clip all over the web. Someone made a big mistake with this one.
