    Lorry driver should have spotted the two big warning signs and just given her a very wide birth!

    By the sounds of it she was dawdling along in the inside lane doing less than 50, pretty much all lorries are restricted to between 52 and 56mph, that being a dual carriageway, he was probably doing the latter. It wouldn't surprise me either that the real cause of the accident was the car driver, not concentrating on the road, and crossing the lines, being clipped by the wagons bumper and spun into its path. And she cant blame it on a foreign driver, as just looking at the pic, the driver looks to be on the right side of the tractor unit's cab.
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!

    Yeah who actually gets over taken by a lorry!!

    How the hell did the accident happen behind though, surely the traffic was going slow due to the lorry accident??

    Nah, the pug slammed on to avoid hitting something and the BMW driver was on his phone (as they always seem to be)

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I have a good idea of how this will of happened as i use this road regular as i live close to it.

    The car will of come off the A19 on the slip road which turns into the inside of two lanes of the dual carrage way and the HGV has come off the round about which is just out of shot but the lane the hgv has to use is the outside lane of dual carrage way and you can not change lanes untill about 50 yards before where the accident is. so as you can guess the car has come off the slip road but been traveling faster than the wagon and caught up to it but been in its blide spot and the hgv driver has not seen the car as he has indicted and moved across and the car has been pushed around the front of the hgv.

    So not always the hgv's fault as most people usually think

    the pug rear ended the beemer though! unless the beemer was reversing along the dual carriageway.

    At least no one was hurt, could have been a lot worse, although getting overtaken by a lorry is something that should never happen to a car lol
