Comments (0)[1]

A young girl cheated death after a van violently smashed into the back of a lorry. Paramedics were scrambled to Beckingham Street in Tolleshunt Major on Thursday afternoon (February 23) after the trailer crashed straight through the van’s windscreen. The incident, which took place shortly after 4pm, was attended by police[2] and ambulance services.

These gut-wrenching pictures show the van’s windscreen has been shattered by the force of the impact. It has crumpled away from the frame and the baby seat is just inches away from the dashboard. A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “We received a call at 4.44pm on Thursday with reports of a crash involving a van and a lorry on Beckingham Street, Tolleshunt Major.
