Shocking moment truck loses control and flips over after driver fell asleep
A truck driver narrowly avoided serious injury after nodding off behind the wheel of her truck, ploughing through the central reservation of the M5.
Sarah-Louise Murray from County Armagh was driving through Somerset having left Scotland the evening before. Ms Murray lost control of her truck at 7.12am on March 13 having spent more than ten hours behind the wheel.
Shocking dashcam footage from a HGV following Murray shows how her lorry drifts to the left onto the hard shoulder before clipping the bank and slewing wildly to the right.
The truck swerves in front of a car with the dashcam and crashes through the central reservation as Murray’s trailer topples over sideways and slides onto the north bound carriageway.
