  8. M40 crash pictures taken following 'miraculous' escape

    Truck and car collision on M40

    Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service has released pictures of the large scale operation on the M40 yesterday, in which a truck ended up on the central reservation and on top of a car.

    No-one was seriously hurt in the collision, which happened between junctions 10 and 9 southbound at 06:30, and ended up causing long delays for much of the day.

    Station manager Mike Clarke said: "Both drivers involved in this incident were extremely fortunate not to have suffered from more serious injuries.

    "Miraculously, the force of the impact tore the car driver’s door off, meaning that he was freed without mechanical assistance from us.

    "Due to where both vehicles came to a stop, it was necessary to reduce the number of running lanes then eventually close one carriageway altogether to recover both vehicles safely."
