It’s hard to forget a video like this, but we’re going to show it again anyway. We first posted this back in January when everybody who seemed to own a computer with internet access was watching it.
Remember that video that was posted where a truck driving along a motorway with a Renault Clio stuck in front of the cab? Well, John Tomlinson, the driver of the truck, was absolved of any wrongdoing stemming from the incident after North West traffic commissioner Beverley Bell remarked that instead of being punished, Mr. Tomlinson should be lauded for his cool-temperament during the whole episode.
"What you found when you pulled into the hard shoulder must have come as a complete shock and I think what you did, in reversing your tanker to release the Clio, was of huge credit to you," said Commissioned Bell.
Bell also told Tomlinson that he could retain his LGV driving license because, given the circumstances, there was no way for the truck driver to see, hear or smell the Clio that was in front of him.
As far as we’re concerned, we’re just glad that all the parties involved in this freak occurrence came out on the right side of the scale, proving once again that all’s well that ends well.
