Heart-stopping dashcam clip shows jack-knifed lorry dangling over bridge after crash
This heart-stopping footage captures the moment a lorry was left dangling over a bridge in the aftermath of a motorway crash. The HGV is seen partially hanging over the bridge above other roads on the M25 following the accident yesterday afternoon. The main carriageway at junction 2 for the Darenth Interchange was closed due to the jack-knifed lorry.
Footage shows the HGV crashed into the side of the motorway barrier with part of its trailer and several wheels hanging off the bridge. Sarah Hamer, 39, was travelling with her family in the car when they spotted the horrific crash. Sarah said: “As far as we could see, the front of the lorry had impact marks.
