WOW, what a ride. I'd be doing some serious praying.

Its amazing to think the lorry driver didn't even know.

That's incredible :suspect:

It says in the text that the driver of the truck didn't even know he was pushing the vehicle along in that manner. I mean, how you could not be aware?

It's a miracle no one got hurt.

This is a very odd situation. The BBC report that the accident happened on 13 January, police attended following a report of a collision and found both vehicles on the hard shoulder, and the incident was treated as a damage-only collision.

So, questions I'd ask are:

did the car driver tell the police what happened or did the police not believe her (it would have been pretty fantastical story if anyone was actually capable of speaking coherently after that experience);

there should have been evidence of tyres marks along that stretch of road, even if the road was slick from rain, which should have been investigated if the police had been told/believed that the incident occurred as in the video;

why did the people videoing this not hand over the video evidence to the police but only put it up on YouTube, presumably some weeks after;

what damage did the car actually sustain, and is it possible for such an incident to leave no evidence along the side of the car;

what would the car driver have put on her insurance claim form, and what did the insurance investigator/car repairer find on examination;

how could the lorry driver continue to drive after such a shocking experience for him (unless, again, either the car driver couldn't speak coherently or he also thought it was too fantastical to be true);

it could be that the car drifted into the lane in front of the lorry, but the lorry driver should have noticed that (but, sometimes lorry drivers have momentary lapses in concentration);

the owners of the lorry say there was an incident between one of their lorries and a car in January, so what was their understanding from both the driver and the lorry as to what happened.

Extraordinary events do happen, but there's a lot in this incident that doesn't add up.
