Driver's near miss
11:46am Tue Feb 01, 2011
A Balderton woman narrowly escaped being crushed by a lorry that toppled over on a village road.
Jade Davis, 20, of Coging Close, was driving through Kilvington on Monday morning when the refuse lorry toppled over on to her side of the road as the two vehicles approached each other from opposite directions.
"I came around a bend to see the back of the lorry swinging out which took the rest of the lorry with it," she said.
"If I had been a couple of seconds earlier, I would have been underneath it."
Although the lorry clipped the front of Miss Davis's car pushing her backwards, both she and the driver were unharmed.
