Obviously subject to clarification but it looks like the crash barrier didn’t do its job…🤔

A car joining the carriageway decided to try to get Infront of us and caused Sheree to swerve to avoid them, we hit a car in the middle lane then were rear ended and ended up here

Speculating: looks like the barrier was hit almost straight on. You can see a 90 degree bend in each bit of barrier as it's wrapped round each side of the van.

Back motorhoming after a 6ish year break!

Hope everyone else was lucky enough to walk away, it must have been a right knock about.

Horrendous, glad you're both ok ❤️

Since 2009 with motorhomes several caravans then tents before that.
Thank goodness you’re both ok. Could’ve been a lot worse by the looks of your van . I bet you are both a bit sore and have been thrown about a lot .
Hopefully the insurance will play ball and sort you a new van out .

Nigel so sorry to hear this Sheree is such an experienced driver if she couldn't avoid it no one could. Hopefully you will get a car sorted out quickly. I was pleased to hear the dogs are okay,. Hope it all gets sorted quickly
Sending love to you both.

What a terrible thing to happen. Glad that you are all safe but it must have been very frightening.

The most important things is you are all safe and walked away. Take care and rest up as the shock will hit soon if it hasn’t already

Wow, what an awful experience. It looks as though the nearside tyre has burnt off but no sign of fire damage other than that area, strange.

Absolute beginners.
At times like that mercifully everyone is safe, everything else is just stuff. Some liquid knock out drops might be needed tonight.
