Video shows high speed crash on A5 where Maidstone driver ends up in hospital

Dashcam footage shows the moment a driver was injured in a high speed crash involving a classic-style car.

Dr Syd Hassan from Maidstone was stuck in traffic on the A5 near Shrewsbury when a 2018 Morgan Plus 4 smashed into the back of his Audi SUV.

The video shows the classic-style car crumple into his car, before it spins off the road.

Dr Syd Hassan's vehicle barely moved, despite the impact, which caused the bonnet to fly off the Morgan.

But he and his partner ended up being taken to hospital with neck and soft tissue injuries.

The 31-year-old, who lives in Maidstone, said: "We were off on a four day holiday to Snowdonia and were coming back home in our Model year 2019 Audi SUV, on A5 near Shrewsbury.

"We slowed down with other cars at a busy roundabout when this gentleman came out of nowhere at 70mph and rammed his car into us from behind.

"My first reaction was that of shock and jolt, but being an emergency doctor within seconds I was running to that gentleman so see if he was ok.
