AN ELDERLY driver escaped causing a serious accident after he drove the wrong way along a busy motorway.
The man turned right into oncoming traffic on the M1 before reversing back down the outside lane.
He went forwards again as cars swerved around him before reversing back to the slip road to escape unhurt.
Lorry driver Mark Thomas, 54, caught the near miss at Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, on his dash cam. He said: ‘I was really shaken up by it, he could have killed someone. I couldn’t believe it.’
