He said: ‘My wife and I were driving home from Portsmouth when we saw it.

‘Whoever was driving southbound at that time would have had an almighty shock.

‘I couldn’t really work out the dynamics of the crash, it looked like a particularly unusual incident.

‘It’s frightening to think that there would have been people travelling along when that happened, it could have been so much worse than it was.’
