Kent's emergency services and ITV have joined forces to recreate the Sheppey Crossing crash for a one-off documentary. Miraculously, nobody died when over 100 vehicles crashed on the bridge in September 2013. 'Crash: Anatomy of an Accident' airs tonight at 9pm.
It's known as one of the UK's worst ever road crashes. Cars, lorries, vans and motorbikes crashed in thick fog on the 100ft high bridge and the crash site covered around a mile. More than 300 people were caught up in the incident; many were left with life threatening injuries.
The huge emergency service response to the Sheppey Crossing crash involved KFRS, SECAmb, Kent Police and other support services like the Red Cross volunteers, who all rushed to the scene to face an unprecedented scenario.
Told from the points of view of those at the heart of the accident, the documentary uses testimonies from individuals trapped in vehicles, those injured in the incident and the emergency service staff who attended the scene throughout the day.
