Lack of fatalities in collision between tractor and car described by police as a ‘miracle’

A road in York in the UK was left covered in slurry following a collision between a Volkswagen Beetle and a JCB Fastrac tractor which was towing a slurry tanker.

The Beetle was crushed by the JCB on the A19 and police have spoken of how it was a “miracle” that the passengers survived the devastating crash.

One of the passengers of the Beetle had to be rescued from the wreck by firefighters and was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The driver was taken to hospital having suffered minor injuries and the driver of the JCB suffered no injuries in the collision.

The road was closed for several hours while police cleared up the road from the contaminated substances in the tanker and investigated the accident.

Police are asking for anyone who witnessed the collision, or saw either vehicle beforehand, and who has not already spoken to police, to email: [email protected]; or call 101 quoting reference number 12200222506.
