News: What on earth are they doing?! Motorists shocked as lorry drives wrong way down dual carriageway

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

Motorists were left shocked in Boston after a delivery lorry drive down a dual carriageway the wrong way.

One witness, Jon Carpenter, had just picked up his son from school and was on the way home when he spotted the lorry going up the road on the wrong side of the carriageway in Wide Bargate in the town.

The lorry had left the junction on Freiston Road before turning onto Wide Bargate heading towards the centre of town.

Mr Carpenter was then shocked to see the lorry pull out of the junction and ignore oncoming traffic.

 

He told Lincolnshire Live: “It was at 3.15pm on Monday.

“The lorry came out of Frieston Road and instead of following the traffic in front, turning down the correct side of the dual carriageway, the lorry decided to cut across the road.

“It attempted to go the wrong way against unsuspecting oncoming traffic.

“The lorry couldn’t reverse back due to traffic behind the lorry.

“It caused long queues of traffic before it eventually managed to reverse and go the correct way.”

No injuries were caused as a result of the incident – but it got a lot of people talking on Facebook.

One woman said: “What a numpty.”

Another said: “No wonder there are so many road accidents round here.”

And another woman summed up the feelings of many by simply asking: “Did this driver get his licence out of a cornflake box or what?”
