Just watched that as well. Don't go thinking your T4 is unsafe. At motorway speeds you would have been in trouble what ever vehicle you was in.

I think the van saved their lives along with the emergancy services
PURE LUCK saved them - and nothing more than that......

It really does illustrate one of my own firmly held beliefs - that being 'If it's your time, then it's your time - and if it isn't, then it isn't'

Clearly, it wasn't the time for either of the T4 occupants - although God only knows how! It certainly had nothing to do with the type of vehicle they were driving.....

Sad, very sad............. :(

yea it was the drivers nephew, with the driver suffering serious injuries - never found out if he recovered tho. was right nasty accident, would of hated to have witnessed that, especially the corsa, which must of gone under the lorry to have ripped the roof off like it did.
messy
