Truck carrying fertiliser burst into flames as it fell off a bridge

  • 09 May 2014
  • By Christopher Walton

A driver has sustained cuts, bruises and a dislocated shoulder after the vehicle he was driving came off a bridge on the M18.

The accident happened yesterday (Thursday 8 May).

Humberside Police said that a tyre on the HGV had burst, which caused the vehicle to slide across the road and fall off the bridge. As it fell the HGV, which was carrying fertiliser, set on fire.

The 61-year old driver was airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary and police were forced to close the M62 westbound connecting with the M18.
