Oh dear. I hope the girls ate not too badly Injured both physically and mentally . Never ever get sandwiched between two lorries as they probably can't see you. Get out as soon as it is safe to do so. This is one of my many anxieties, so scary.

Irrespective of who is at fault, I do wish drivers and riders of ALL vehicles gave themselves more time and space to react on approach to the Dartford Crossing.
Time and time again, I see drivers tailgating and weaving in and out of the traffic, and then wonder why it all goes belly-up.
Slow down and give yourself TIME TO REACT!!!
