Comments (0)[1]

A car involved in a serious crash with two lorries on the A13 near Grays was ‘crushed and unrecognisable’, according to one witness. The exit slip road on the A13 westbound at the Stifford Interchange[2] has been closed since around 9.30am this morning after an accident involving a Yodel lorry, a car and another lorry. Ryan Morgan, who drove past the scene[3], saw firefighters working on the Yodel lorry.

“The car is under the front of the lorry, is side on and completely crushed and only just being removed,” he said. “It has a black sheet over it and doesn’t look good.”

The Yodel lorry has had to be moved by a crane in the last hour. Ryan added: “There is debris all over three lanes, as well as diesel spillage. READ MORE: First pictures and video from the scene of serious A13 crash[4]

“I was caught up on the A13 for about an hour or so at a standstill. “We were all then made to turn around and go back down the A13 to the next junction – to me it seemed clear it was something serious.

“However the paramedics didn’t seem to be doing much – I think it was already late for the driver and/or the passenger. “It was a small hatchback and is crushed and unrecognisable. “The fire engines parked on the hard shoulder and made a shield with tarpaulin and there was a black sheet over the front of the car and lorry.”

Ryan added that he thought the car may have been sandwiched between two lorries. “It also seemed that the other lorry involved carried on for 50 metres or so.

It didn’t look particularly damaged.”
