Jason Thurrock, the driver blamed for the August M2 crash, spoke about it today. "Police and traffic reporters, 'specially that Sally Boazman from Radio Two, bang on about jams caused by 'rubberneckers' slowing down near accidents."
"I saw the traffic, with park-anywhere lights flashing, and said to myself 'Don't cause a tailback, just keep going'. Which I did. Right up to when I drove into the back of a Sterling Eccles caravan. I'm not sure if it was the 544 Sport or the 554. Probably the six berth 554, judging from the number of pillows. Anyway, I was spitting feathers. I ploughed through it as if it was made of match wood. Which it was."
Thurrock's full memory and concentration may yet return. "Unfortunately, I can't say the same about my kids. Or my legs. Still, swings and roundabouts. My Berghaus boots were leaking, that's £150 saved". Asked if this would change his driving Thurrock said "That Sally's got a sexy voice. You think she and Johnnie Walker.... you know?"
