A lorry driver smashed into a rail bridge carrying brand new Range Rovers and a Jaguar smashed into a bridge, tearing the roofs off some of the cars.

The blunder happened at 8:30AM, when the lorry carrying the luxury 4x4s, with some still in their plastic wrapping, collided with a bridge in Perthsire.

Gareth Rudock, 40, saw the accident and said he believed two of the cars were a ‘write off’. He said “ I was just there dropping my wife off at the station and I did a double take. There are some open topped cars now. Some of them still had their plastic on, they must have been getting delivered. I just saw the aftermath. The police were there brushing up the bits and pieces which had broken off. The driver was there looking a bit unhappy.” The father of two added “Nobody was hurt, but it wasn’t a good day for that fella. I think pretty much all the cars on the top were damaged, but as they got further back the damage was lesser. The first couple of cars must have been written off, or you would have to rebuild the entire car.”

Police Scotland said they attended the crash shortly after 8am, confirming no-one was injured and that the road was cleared by 9am.
