Sleeping lorry driver jailed after crashing onto the wrong side of the motorway

Terrifying footage taken from a dashcam has captured the moment a HGV driver crashed onto the wrong side of the M62 motorway – before driving into oncoming traffic for a mile.

Michael Hughes, 63, was jailed at Liverpool Crown Court after admitting falling asleep at the wheel. The footage from his own dashcam captured Hughes' lorry drifting across two lanes of the motorway and smashing through the central reservation between junctions seven and eight of the M62 motorway.
