Near Death Experience

I was driving to work on Monday morning when I was overtaken by red van with two extending ladders on its roof.

As it passed the white van ahead of me, the wind swept the ladders off its roof. They then turned so they were across the road and bounced towards us throwing up dirt and gravel.

Fortunately the ladders hit the van in front and bounced into the overtaking lane. Even so I was lucky to avoid them, and the white van which stopped very suddenly.

I was tempted to stop and be a witness, but it seemed to be fairly cut-and-dried, especially as the red van stopped too. I hope they sorted it out.
