Footage shows the moment a van was launched 12ft into the air after it failed to slow down for a roundabout.
The ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ moment was caught by motorcyclist Andy Daynes, 35, on his helmet-cam. He was driving behind the van on the A11 at Attleborough, Norfolk, when he spotted the incident.
Andy, of Hingham, Norwich said: “I was actually on my motorbike behind him so I saw it all. I pulled over along with some other drivers to see if he was OK. He had to be cut out of the van – but he seemed to be alright, he wasn’t badly injured. It is quite a bad roundabout, he just didn’t see what was coming because he was going so fast. He was on his own, he had a few cuts and bruises but the ambulance came straight away and took him to hospital. He just didn’t see the roundabout coming.”
If ever there was a lesson as to why you should pay full attention when driving, this would be it.
