Shocking footage shows truck REVERSING towards oncoming traffic on A15

Shocking footage has emerged of a truck driver REVERSING onto the A15 near the Humber Bridge into the path of fast-moving traffic. The astonishing video shows other motorists having to swerve out of the way on the 70mph dual-carriageway as the HGV is carelessly backed onto the road shortly after 8am today. As the road bends, oncoming drivers travelling at speed were lucky to spot the truck in time to safely manoeuvre around it.

The footage was filmed on the A15 at the Barton interchange where the HGV was sighted reversing across the on slip junction with the A1077. Unbelievably, the HGV then began reversing even further along the road into the path of oncoming vehicles.

Reacting to the video on social media, Beccy Howell said: “Wow, lucky no-one was hurt!”. Whilst North Shropshire Inspector Tracy Ryan simply added: “Really?”

Humberside Police said the manner of driving will be “dealt with” and they thanked Humber Bridge staff for their assistance with the footage.
