The truck and its luxurious cargo are estimated to be worth north of $1 million. The array of automotive excellence included the likes of a Lamborghini Aventador, a Jaguar F-Type, two Ferraris, an AMG GT, a Nissan GT-R, an Aston Martin, and a BMW. The lone escapee was a Bentley Continental, which paradoxically ended up on its roof.
The cars were in transit from Brands Hatch to Goodwood, following an event, and were connected to Everyman Racing, a company that later acknowledged the incident on its Instagram. The company expressed pride in their heavy goods vehicle driver named Richard, citing his quick reflexes as a potentially life-saving factor.
At present, the cause of the accident remains shrouded in mystery. Whether or not the driver will face any charges is also yet to be confirmed.
