    Paramedics treated a woman after a three-vehicle collision on the M1 this morning.
    It happened on the southbound stretch between junction 14 at Milton Keynes and junction 13 at Brogborough.

    The collision involved a car, a lorry and a motorhome, which tipped on to its side.

    Firefighters from Broughton and Toddington were called to the incident shortly after 6am. They were at the scene for about 15 minutes and made the vehicles safe.

    Oh gosh, it's so awful to see something in a position that you wouldn't normally see it in. It makes you wonder what happened just before this and what made the mh tip over:Sad:

    I hope the lady wasn't seriously hurt.

    Looks as though she might have cut in on the lorry, perhaps forgetting the length of her vehicle. Pure supposition on my part of course.

    it actually says it was a three vehicle collision mmmmm wonder if we are going by guess work what part the third vehicle played in it.
    I do dislike these men that automatically think 'female' bound to be her fault - its not even good for a laugh

    and yes there are some stupid females out there but they are balanced by the equally stupid and arrogant males

    Maybe in your very small mind, you believe that's true.

    Women are safer drivers then men

    Purely my observer when being driven around by females of all ages, they all have some common traits. My advice is....Don't distract them with conversation, they cant manage driving and talking together....another observation is they have no concept of anything that is going on more than one car length away in any direction.....They only know two throttle positions, no throttle and full throttle.....They tend to misread most driving situations.......... Jims survey makes no mention of how many disasters they leave in their wake.
    I'm sure given time I will find a female driver without these common traits. But not as yet.:lips::driving2::lips:
