On social media, a spokesman for BCH Road Policing added: “Amazingly (there were) no injuries. Broken down van, struck by HGV, minutes later. Never sit in your vehicle in a live lane! Thankfully the van driver today was out and safely behind the barrier.”
The collision caused some lengthy delays on the road through the morning rush hour for a number of hours while the crash debris was cleared from the carriageway.
