Hi boss. Are you sitting down?....
Lorry driver lucky to escape with minor injuries after bridge blow
Car drivers arriving in Swindon first thing this morning weren't happy with the driver of this lorry.
A serious misjudgement on the height of the bridge over Wootton Bassett road near DFS caused a major incident, with traffic jams stretching back to the M4.
bridge blow on Wootton Bassett road
The driver of the lorry involved fortunately escaped with just cuts and bruises, although quite whether his boss thought it was an April Fool when he called up to tell them what had happened no-one knows!
