A car transporter carrying several new F-Pace and E-Pace Jaguars to a Shrewsbury dealership underestimated the hight of a railway bridge, causing an estimated £132,000 of damage. The cargo was reportedly being transported from the manufacturer to a main dealership in Shrewsbury, West Midlands, when the top-end collided with the low bridge around 10am this morning. The transporter was being driven by a Cheshire-based haulage firm - G.A Newsome Ltd.
Thankfully, nobody was injured in this accident.
3 vehicles (2 F-Pace and 1 E-Pace) are believed to be beyond repair after two of them "went flying" from the top of the vehicle, according to a bystander. Local police closed the A5112 road in both directions for approximately 2 hours to clean up any debris.
JLR (Jaguar Land Rover) have yet to comment on the accident.
