A car falls out a trailer just off a motorway

This is the moment a £200,000 race car fell out the back of a trailer -- while the vehicle was driving down a road.Andrew Jackson, 55, was driving his 23-year-old daughter to Luton Airport for her flight back to Lisbon where she is a teacher.As he came off the M40 at Cherwell Valley and approached the roundabout, his dashcam footage caught the moment a car rolled out the back of a white trailer. It is unclear what model the car was but onlookers said it looked like a £200,000 Ford Escort rs 500.Mr Jackson said it was setup for racing with a "roll cage, a huge rear spoiler, stripped interior and a bank of toggle switches" and no passenger seat.Mr Jackson, from Alcester, Warwickshire, said: "I just laughed.

Obviously if it happened on the M40 it would have been completely different."The software engineer said the traffic came to a stand still as all the lorry drivers and other road users got out their cars to help.Some cars swerved the trailer, which had stopped on the roundabout, while six people were helped the panic-stricken driver put the car back in the trailer.He added: "When I got back into the car I stopped the dashcam so I knew where it was. "As soon as I got back I showed my wife and daughter and sent it out to my other daughter in Portugal. "They all had a good laugh."
