Have your say

This is the moment of madness when an impatient 4x4 motorist on the A17 at Walpole St Andrew tried to overtake a lorry by driving on the wrong side of the dual carriageway.

The incident was caught by the dashcam in the lorry of Michael Wayman and it happened the day after a woman died on the same stretch of road in an accident which left two children fighting for their lives.

More than 5,000 people have now signed an online petition calling for a roundabout to be installed at the crash site at Terrington St Clement.

Mr Wayman is the owner of a lorry firm in Sutton Bridge. His wife Nicola said: “That is a stretch of road we know well. Our daughter works for Adrian Flux in East Winch and we often travel to King’s Lynn.

“People are just so reckless along there and nearly kill themselves. They try to overtake you and when they get to the Pullover roundabout they still find there are two cars in front of them. What is the point?

“Unfortunately my husband couldn’t get the number of the car or anything.”

Police say they have been made aware of the footage.
