Police in United Kingdom release video of dramatic crash as 'warning to drivers to pay attention'

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, U.K. (WPVI) -- A court in the UK has sentenced a 65-year-old truck driver to 18 months in prison and given him a 29-month driving ban, Nottinghamshire Police said on November 10, after the man was found guilty of dangerous driving causing serious injury.

Police released this video of the June 2018 incident, in which a truck driven by David Price crashed into the back of a car, which in turn plowed into a line of vehicles stopped on the A17 near Newark.

One of those injured, the driver of a Renault Clio, police said, suffered bleeding on her brain, along with "a broken back, broken neck, broken arm, broken ribs and a broken nose."

Inspector Heather Sutton, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for the Newark and Sherwood area, said the incident could have been avoided if Price "had paid attention when behind the wheel."

"Now he has time to reflect on the consequences of his actions in prison," the statement continued.
