A van driver who was stopped for filming the scene of a car crash in Wisbech today claimed he was doing it “to prove why he was late.”

Police, fire and ambulance crews attended the crash in South Brink this afternoon, Wednesday October 21, where a BMW had left the road and ended up in a field.

The female driver was taken to Peterborough City Hospital and no other vehicle was involved.

But officers did stop a van driver who drove past the scene while filming it on his phone.

When pulled over by police, who took the driver’s details so they could be reported, the motorist stated the video was “to prove why I’m running late.”

A spokesman for the police said it was “no excuse” to use any electronic device to film the scene of a crash while driving.
