Everyone will be pleased to know that the driver of the Range Rover is a friend and colleague and he is well, just battered, bruised and shocked by what happened.
He was driving a Range Rover to take the Ribtec down for a holiday break in Cornwall and decided to have a slow overnight run down. Having recently had a coffee break and was heading south on the M5 about 45 mph on the inside lane when suddenly a truck came up behind and smashed straight into the back of the towed RIB pushing the rib out into the lane and jack knifing the lot. The boat went over on the trailer but the range rover stayed on its tyres but was forced into a crash barrier and down a ditch.
The lorry driver who did this only stopped some way down the road out of the photo images. People who saw this have told police the lorry driver just drove straight into the back of the RIB and luckily have helped so the lorry driver is prosecuted.
As stated elsewhere a bad incident but everyone is about to tells us what happened and not as shown in some reporting and linked e mails.
