Shocking moment van is tipped over by car on motorway

Updated: 

Dashcam footage has captured the moment a van was tipped over by a car on the M11 motorway near Stansted airport.


A Mercedes Sprinter box van can be seen overtaking the vehicle equipped with the dashcam before it moves over into the inside lane. A white Vauxhall Zafira Tourer following behind then drifts over to the left.


It then clips the van, making it lose its balance and spin into the central reservation, causing it tip onto its side, where it ends up lying across the carriageway.

The footage was captured by Barry Smith, who said: "The white car was overtaking the van but it looks like he misjudged it and collided with the van and caused it to turn over."

The incident happened on the M11 near the Stansted Airport junction. The occupants of the van were not said to be injured and they were able to get themselves out.
