Car swerves violently on the M25 in whiplash scam

The driver of the Ford Galaxy blamed the lorry driver for the crash - even though they had driven right into his path across three lanes of the M25. They hoped to make a fortune in compensation for their injuries.

The insurance claim was avoided because the lorry had a camera fitted to the dashboard. The footage showed that the recklessness of the driver at the wheel of the people carrier caused the crash.
