Watch as tractor runs over car – but driver emerged with MINOR injuries
THIS is the horror moment a massive tractor ran over and crushed a car on a busy road outside an airbase – but the driver miraculously emerged with minor injuries.
The shocking collision just outside RAF Mildenhall Suffolk was captured on CCTV.
Emergency crews were called to the A1101 in Beck Row at 12.24pm following reports a tractor had collided with a sliver sedan.
Cops confirmed everyone in the crash was “conscious and breathing”.
Shocking footage recorded on Saturday showed the tractor and carriage slowly veering onto on-coming traffic.
The driver in the silver sedan slowed down and comes to a complete halt but the farming tractor continues on, ploughing into the car and eventually over it before tipping to its side.
Airbase officials confirmed the driver of the crushed sedan escaped with “no major injuries”.
A 100th Air Refuelling Wing Public Affairs spokesman said: “We can confirm that on September 24 at approximately 12.08pm local standard time a tractor collided with a car that was driven by an Airman stationed at RAF Mildenhall, United Kingdom.
“The member is okay and had no major injuries.
“After a medical review and care from the Airmen’s leadership, the Airmen returned to work on Monday, September 26.”
The road was temporarily closed to allow recovery crews to clean up a diesel spill.
And according to Suffolk police, an 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs and being unfit for driving.
It comes as a boy died in a horror car crash after a vehicle flipped onto its roof with two adults and another child hospitalised.
Emergency services were scrambled with the child in critical condition after the crash off Ribbesford Road, Worcestershire, but he tragically died at the scene.
The shocking incident occurred shortly before 5pm on Saturday, according to Worcester News.
Four other occupants in the vehicle all underwent further checks at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
One was a girl who was given treatment at the scene for non-life threatening injuries.
