Mayhem as truck SMASHES through barrier into oncoming traffic

Drivers had a “lucky escape” after a truck smashed through barriers into oncoming vehicles. The Yearsley Logistics truck then rolled down an embankment and into a ditch. “The truck was travelling south on the A19[1] when it smashed through the armco barriers between the A689 and A1027 and after crossing the northbound carriageway veered off the road,” say Cleveland Police[2] .

“(It) went down the embankment where it came to a stop. “Luckily nobody was injured and the truck had a few near misses from on coming vehicles.” The scary incident occurred at around 7.30pm on Friday night when the truck was travelling south.

Police are warning drivers of possible disruption as it recovers the truck, which it says will happen at “some point today”.

Yearsley’s Seaham office declined to comment.
