Driver losses control nearly causing another crash

M1 s/b at Leicester earlier this morning

Close call!

Car lost control under braking. Truck driver was in a loaded car transporter and brakes were locking on the damp road. Accident was only avoided because lane 4 was empty as he had no chance of stopping.

  • Gotta give it to both drivers tbh firstly to the car driver

    Controlling it and getting it back in to the lane and avoiding a multi vehicle up and the the truck driver do his quick thinking and avoiding the accident

  • This is actually my daughters car... the autohandbrake is located by the left knee, and her knee hit it whilst driving. It was a mechanical failure as their should be a lock on the handbrake whilst in motion.

  • Looks very much like something mechanical happened there and he did a great job in recovery. Why else would he just stop afterwards just my thoughts but fair play to him. And I didn't see anything to avoid and why would he just not carry on ???

  • I don't fully understand how he lost control, but the skill this guy has is something worth noting. 👍

    • Maybe a blow out or transmission failure? Brake lights didn't come on when he lost control till after the initial swerve.
