Last week, a driver told of his miracle survival after being trapped in the wreckage of his van for two painstaking hours.

Michael Radford, 39, woke up crushed in his vehicle after getting sandwiched between two lorries in a major motorway crash.

The dad of three said firefighters “thought he was dead” after the horror smash which happened while he queued in standstill traffic after missing his exit on his drive home

He told Manchester Evening News : “I don’t remember much about the initial impact, I completely blacked out,” Michael recalled.

“Then I regained consciousness and I woke up crushed. I couldn’t see what was going on and I was out of it.

“It took the fire brigade around two hours to cut me out and I was airlifted to hospital.

“Even I look back at pictures now and ask myself ‘how I am still alive’?”
