Scary! Wide load causes drivers to swerve

A wide load which caused drivers to swerve out of the way has been pointed as one of the reasons Lincolnshire “has so many accidents.”

The lorry seemed to be transporting some tubes and had a wheel sticking out of the right side into the oncoming lane.

Drivers were seen swerving out of the way on the B1191 from Horncastle to Woodhall Spa, close to the village of Thornton on Tuesday, July 16.

A LIVES responder saw the lorry and filmed it before sending the video to Lincolnshire Reporter.

They said: “This is why Lincolnshire has so many accidents. This was filmed very close to where the last fatal motorcycle crash was.”
