Dramatic footage showing a car trapped on the front of a speeding Lorry has been captured on a mobile phone. It appears the truck driver was unaware of hitting the Renault hatchback, before pushing the vehicle at 60 miles per hour along the UK Motorway. Police launched an investigation into the incident which took place back in January, but reports say there were no injuries or arrests.
A VET from York has told how she feared for her life after being rammed down a busy motorway by a massive tanker.
Rona Williams, 31, told how her blue Renault Clio became wedged against the 18-wheelers frontage, as it careered down the A1(M) near Wetherby.
Video footage of the drama became a massive internet hit when it was posted on YouTube last week and Rona has now told of her terrifying ordeal.
She said she yanked at the steering wheel and handbrake, sounded her horn and flashed her lights in vain, before finally using her mobile phone to alert police.
She told a 999 operator: Im going to die, Im going to die! Can you do something?
The tanker driver realised the problem when his vehicle began lurching.
Miss Williams, who was on her way to her surgery in Garforth, said: He finally twigged and managed to manoeuvre us onto the hard shoulder. He backed up to release my car, got out and opened my door to check I was okay.
"He even asked if I thought he needed to hang around! I told him he did because Id called the police.
They were there in minutes but because I wasnt injured they just helped exchange our insurance details. I wasnt physically hurt but I was in complete shock.
The YouTube footage was taken by a passenger in another car, who is heard shouting: He hasnt even seen it!
West Yorkshire Police are re-investigating the incident, which happened in Janaury.
Rona told reporters: I was aware of the tanker. We had been on the road together for a while and he was in the middle lane. The next thing I know Im stuck to the front of his lorry. Ive no idea how but I didnt deviate from my path.
I just felt a knock and then I was travelling sideways. I dont know how long for but it felt like forever.
I was terrified the tanker was going to crash me into the central reservation, and that would be that.
Ive seen the footage and the trucker seems to be going along like nothing has happened and thats exactly what it felt like.
The tanker is owned by Arclid Transport in Cheshire.
