His personal website is worthy of David Brent!

Looks like he deserved it to me.... Defo a David Brent. I'd like to see what he was doing earlier in the video to then end up hogging the middle lane with hazards on!

The About page is fully-great. The shunted car doesn't scream non-exec director.

The car driver needs to go on a defensive driving course as playing chicken with a 40 tonne lorry on a public road is tantamount to dangerous driving in my eyes.

The lorry driver shouldn't have taken the bait and he's not much better TBH.

Scary that someone like the car driver could be accepted as a special constable, his lack of intelligence is worrisome.

I would like to hope he is an EX special constable, a not very clever or special one.

Remarkably little damage given the speed and size of vehicle, all seems very suspect!

This is easily the worst part of the story, and the one thing that justifies the amount of stick he's getting.

The truck driver was being a dick, that goes without saying, but how was this an ambulance-worthy accident?!



That ambulance and those EMTs could have been saved for someone who actually needed them.

Yeah, middle lane hogging for the purpose of other activities seem to be suspected.

How could the damage be so little given an artic hit it and the car clearly moves (assuming the artic actually did hit it.....)

That shunt nearly snapped the poor dood's neck and shoulders, according to his statement. Very strongly built car - re-enforced Kevlar maybe?
