Shocking dashcam footage shows a small lorry smashing into a truck parked at the side of a dual carriageway before continuing its journey without stopping. 

During the incident – which happened on the A1 near Bramham, West Yorkshire – the white lorry veers out of the left-hand lane and into the side of the road where the HGV is parked. 

At the last minute the driver appears to try to turn out of the way of the parked obstacle but does not have time. 

The lorry then smashes into the side of the HGV sending parts of both vehicles flying into the air and the road. 

However despite the collision the driver carries on driving along the road as though nothing had happened. 

A witness to the collision said he persuaded the driver to stop further up the road but when asked about the incident he denied the crash.  

The witness who filmed the incident said: ‘He did stop further up the road, with some gentle persuasion from my driver’s horn and flashing lights!

‘The first thing he said was… ‘I didn’t hit any parked vehicle,’ he also had a passenger with him who was asleep.

 At the last minute the driver appears to try to turn out of the way of the obstacle but does not have time and hits the back and side of the vehicle

‘He was so, so lucky he swerved when he did or his passenger would almost certainly be dead.

‘And the spillage you see is actually milk.’

West Yorkshire Police said that they did not receive any reports of the incident.
