Caravan swerves out of control on busy Colchester road
1:45pm Monday 21st October 2013 in News
TERRIFIED drivers were forced to swerve out of the way of an out of control caravan after it became unhitched from a car.
Motorists travelling along the 60mph Avenue of Remembrance were confronted with the travelling home heading straight towards them.
The caravan eventually struck a contractor’s white van which was forced off the road and collided with a casualty reduction sign marked “no excuse for poor driving”.
Miraculously nobody was hurt although the driver of the silver Ford Focus which was towing the caravan was shaken up.
Officers at the scene believe the caravan had just left the caravan park on nearby Cymbeline Way.
It was towed straight on at the Spring Lane roundabout and the car began speeding up on the Avenue of Remembrance when the caravan made its escape.
Crash investigators are still working out exactly what happened during the crash just before 11.30am today in Colchester.
