Re: A27 CLOSED ..... AGAIN... due to accident

According to the telegraph:
Quote
A steamroller hit a Tesco lorry on the A27 near Portsmouth early on Friday morning, bringing traffic to a standstill on one of the most popular routes to the coast. The steamroller is understood to have been en route to a show in Dorset.

Looking at the picture which clearly show the FRONT of the lorry is damaged, my question is what on earth was a steamroller doing reversing along a main road? Grin Grin
Perhaps their report isn't quite accurate and the lorry didn't spot the slow moving vehicle in front and drove in to the back of it!

Looks to me, from the wreckage, that the lorry drove into the back of the Steam Roller`s caravan/wagon... as that is all smashed up on the hard shoulder...
