Horror dashcam footage shows lorry smashing into slow-moving traffic on Midlands motorway


Warwickshire Police have released video of a sickening road accident when a lorry smashed into traffic on the A46 near Stratford upon Avon.

Lorry driver Martin Gibson, 54, has been jailed for 15 months after pleading guilty to five counts of dangerous driving following the collision, which occurred on May 21, 2015.

Several motorists were left with serious injuries, and in a statement Warwickshire Police Operational Patrol Unit investigating officer Pc Craig Marshall said: "We have issued the footage, with the agreement of the families of those affected by the incident, as a warning to drivers to pay attention when behind the wheel.

"Mr Gibson's dangerous driving had caused substantial damage, and had the potential to cause loss of life of those within the vehicles that were struck in the space of a few seconds.

"This just shows that not paying attention when behind the wheel of any vehicle can have life changing effects to those involved."
