CCTV footage (scroll down)
The driver of the lorry had just passed an onslip with the A1077 junction when he/she came to a stop as vehicles approached the junction at high speed.
The HGV then reverses over the onslip and enters lane one of the A1077.
Motorists and other lorries only see the HGV reversing towards them at the last minute as they round a sharp bend before taking evasive action in order to avoid smashing into the back of the lorry.
It was only thanks to the quick-thinking of other road users that a serious accident was prevented.
A spokesperson for Humber Roads Police tweeted:
“A15 Barton interchange this HGV was sighted reversing across the onslip junction A1077.
“Unbelievably the HGV then began to reverse into lane 1 A15 towards oncoming vehicles.
“This manner of driving will be dealt with”.
