A new SmartWitness video shows a dramatic collision between HGV and a car on the M6.
The footage captures the moment the blue Nissan Note hits the side of the lorry and is then bounced across the road, after the Nissan driver failed to notice the lorry alongside and veered into the HGV’s lane.
Insurers have found that just 2% of incidents recorded on SmartWitness cameras result in disputed claims – against an industry norm of 40% of motor claims.
SmartWitness managing director Simon Marsh said: “Once a company fits vehicle CCTV they never go back to having their drivers operating without cameras.
“This new video perfectly illustrates their worth.”
