It's a small world :D ......... M1 south J17-16

Stuck in a traffic jam at around 8.30am going south on the M1 at j17 I spotted a very familiar car - 5 door Stilo in petrol blue with claws and a silver grill ..... The one and only @andreist31 looking very relaxed

Yes I did see, it was a lorry that had burst through the central reservation and gone across all three of the lanes on our side and ended up in the ditch.

I was in my lorry on the inside lane and you were in the outside. I thought about blasting my horn but it sounds like a train one and thought You wouldn't know who it was anyway lol

You get used to it after a while I've seen some horrible ones in my 9 years as a lorry driver

It's a Volvo FM9 ridged 18 tonne

I saw that lorry - I was heading northbound from J15 - and saw the barriers down and the lorry down the ditch on the southbound side, with a crane trying to hoist it out ...

Yep it was at that point I saw it too. I was on my way down to Hemel Hempstead and three hours later on the way back they were still clearing it up
