Truck driver jailed following dangerous motorway u-turn
Police shared footage of the dangerous move on social media.
A male truck driver has been jailed and disqualified from driving following a dangerous manoeuvre made on a motorway in the UK.
Staffordshire Police released quite scary footage of the vehicle being driven the wrong way down a slip road and pulling out on to the M6, while other cars drove past.
The driver was not publicly named, and nobody was injured as a result of the incident.
He has been jailed for six months and disqualified from driving for 15 months.
The incident, which you can see footage of below, took place just before 8am on Friday 21 January.
Take a look:
Imagine this on your morning commute 😯 The driver of this lorry was jailed for six months and disqualified from driving for 15 months after he was caught driving dangerously on the M6 Toll last month. Thankfully, no one was injured #OpLightning pic.twitter.com/092qf9GUWf

As the police said, not something you'd expect to see on your morning commute.
A miracle nobody was hurt.
