M6: CCTV Shows The Moment A Lorry Ploughed Into Roadworks

Shocking footage released by the Highways Agency shows the moment a lorry narrowly missed workers on the M6.

The footage has been produced as new figures show that last year saw the highest number of serious injuries among incident response teams since 2007, with 10 road workers suffering major injuries.

The video is an example of workers narrowly escaping serious injury when a driver ignores signs on the road and doesn't slow down.

 

Roads minister John Hayes said:

"The safety of those who work around the clock to carry out vital improvements and keep drivers moving after incidents is absolutely paramount. It is not worth putting road workers’ lives at risk, let alone the tragic impact on their lives and those of their families, simply to shave a few seconds off your journey."
