Comments (0)[1]

A driving instructor has thanked people for stopping to help after he was injured in a horrific crash which closed the A30 while teaching a learner driver. The main road westbound into Cornwall was blocked off after three vehicles collided at about 5.45pm[2] yesterday (Friday) near Launceston. Two people were hurt in the crash, one suffering life-changing injuries.

The air ambulance was called and paramedics, police and fire crews attended the scene. Driving instructor Colin Mullins had been with a pupil, who was taking a pass plus course designed for new drivers, when he found himself very much involved in the collision. Writing about his experience on Facebook, he said his pupil was forced to perform an immediate emergency stop to avoid a lorry in front but then a car crashed into them from behind.

This was hit shortly after by another lorry. Read next: Sent down in January: Criminals no longer walking Cornwall’s streets[3] He said: “Can I say a massive thanks to those who stopped and helped with the car accident on the A30?

I was on a pass plus course. We were subsequently rear-ended by a car and then another lorry. My student, who will remain anonymous, is safe and fine.

I am currently in Derriford with a suspected femur break.” Read next: Watch the scene after a trawler sank in a Cornish harbour[4] He added: “Thankfully we only had minor injuries.

The fault of the accident lies with the other parties. It looks like my car is a total loss and as such it means I may have to cancel a few lessons until a courtesy car is delivered.” The instructor said he was now looking for another car and getting back on the road.
