If you’ve ever wondered how many parcels one of those blue liveried Amazon Prime trucks is carrying as it buzzes past you on the motorway, today it’s revealed in a horrific Amazon truck crash on the A27 near Chichester.
Sadly the driver, a 62-year-old man, suffered a serious injury and has been taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening or life-changing. A car driver, a 50-year-old woman also suffered minor injuries.
If you were thinking of heading down on the A27 today it’s probably best avoided as the road had to be closed in both directions and disruption can be expected for a number of hours. The truck ended up across three lanes of the four lane road, straddling the central reservation.
The Amazon truck crash which occurred around 5.40am this Friday morning, resulted in about a zillion parcels spilling out onto the carriageway. Yes, someone is going to have to pick them all up and there will be 100s of late deliveries but Amazon are great at logistics and they’ll either get the parcels to their destinations or have them replaced within 24 hours.
What’s staggering is the sight of just how many parcels were going down the A27 today and when you consider Amazon have more than 20 fulfilment centres in the UK, each with a ton of trucks in and out on a daily basis, the sheer volumes that Amazon deliver are staggering.
Our thoughts are with the two drivers injured in the accident and we hope they both have a speedy recovery.
