Couple miraculously survive motorway smash with lorry that crushed their car

Despite their car being mangled in a lorry crash on a motorway, the driver and his wife escaped with relatively minor injuries.

Policeman Scott McKim’s motor was hit by the truck which had unexpectedly switched lanes.

Scott’s VW Scirocco was crushed betw­een the HGV and a barrier, ending up stran­­ded in the inside lane where it was hit by another lorry.

Scott, 46, said “it was really frightening” adding that wife Kerrie, 42, “screamed hysterically”.

Scott, a road traffic off­icer for eight years, said: “I’ve attended fatalities where there was far less impact and damage to the vehicle.”

They were freed from the wreckage on the M1 after 40 minutes.

Scott had a hairline fracture of his left eye socket, and midwife Kerrie broke a shoulder.

The pair, of the Northampton area, were injured near Milton Keynes in Bucks on March 7.

At the town’s magistrates court, truck driver Zbigniew Kaczorowski, 55, admitted careless driving, and was banned from the roads for a year.
