A COUPLE had a miracle escape when their car was ripped to shreds in a horror smash with a lorry on the motorway.
Scott and Kerrie McKim somehow walked away unscathed after their car was crushed between and a HGV and barrier on the inside lane – where it was struck by another lorry.
Horror pictures show the VW Scirocco completely mangled after the crash on the M1 – with the engine exposed and roof ripped off.
Debris torn from the car in the smash has also been strewn across the busy motorway.
Scott, 46, who has been a road traffic officer for eight years, told the Mirror: “I’ve attended fatalities where there was far less impact and damage to the vehicle.”
The couple were eventually freed from the wreckage after 40 minutes, with Scott suffering a hairline fracture on his left eye socket and midwife Kerrie a broken shoulder.
