    Another bad crash today...lorry driver killed according to the news.

    From the Highways Agency:

    The M4 eastbound is currently closed between J22 (M49 Severn River Crossing) and J20 (M5 Almondsbury Interchange) due to a serious police led incident.

    The M48 eastbound is also closed at J1.

    All traffic is advised to exit the M48 EB at J1 and follow the A403 SB to the M5 J18A.

    Traffic exiting the M4 EB at J22 should follow the M48 southbound to the M5.

    that one does not surprise me at all.

    regularly i have seen lorries so close together i couldn't get my smart between them.
    i suppose its down to the 56mph speed limiters not quite all set exactly the same but not allowing enough speed to attempt a safe overtake.

    once again its sad for the families of those killed.
