What we have here is the unfortunate case of avoiding one collision, losing control of your vehicle and causing a separate one, all in the span of the few moments.
According to this video’s description and Brian Smith, this truck driver, the Corsa had to swerve to avoid running into the back of this truck, itself almost coming to the stop because of traffic ahead.
What happens next is fairly obvious, with the driver of this Corsa unable to maintain control of this vehicle and smashing right into another vehicle, sending it spinning into a middle lane.
My opinion: The car which allowed the vehicle from the left to merge (3rd car in front of the truck before accident) by coming to the almost complete stop is causing the really dangerous situation. Of course he did because the other vehicle was unable to merge properly, but that’s not the proper reason for stopping on a motorway.
Emergency services arrived soon after and cleared a middle lane, although a first lane remained closed according to Smith.
He also mentions that the old lady sitting in the back of the stationary vehicle was taken to the hospital following the impact.
