Extraordinary dashcam footage has emerged online showing the moment a van driver was forced to take evasive action which meant grinding along the bridge rail, miraculously without of falling onto the dual carriageway below.
The incident, which happened in Burton-Upon-Trent, Staffordshire, was filmed by driving instructor Ian Stinchcombe, whose student was on her test at the time.
Mr Stinchcombe said: “The car was on a test with a female student driving, and an examiner in the passenger seat.
“The girl saw it in the mirror and was in tears when they got back to the test centre.”
The van driver was unharmed and the student managed to pass her exam, despite the incident.
