2 Coaches crash in North Yorks

Sounds like tailgating. VOSA will be going over the coaches with a fine toothed comb...

It's quite common though and not just for coaches. Trucks travelling in convoy from the same company will leave a stupidly small gap even when doing 50mph on single carriageway roads.

And this is the result. Perhaps it will encourage drivers to be more aware of their stopping distances....

However, I don't think this one accident will stop it and it has been going on for years. And yes, at least one of those drivers will probably lose his job over it. The one at the rear. He may even get prosecuted too.

Guaranteed he will get prosecuted, no doubt by VOSA too. Trucks on roads like that are now covered by a 40 mph limit, but they always seem to be doing speeds of up to 56 on them! That company may even be forced out of business by all the injury claims that will be happening. Will be up to 100 claims going in! Bet their insurer is crapping themselves
