A BIZARRE video shows the moment a small car and an 18 tonne lorry have a stand off, as neither can get by in a narrow street.
Shortly after the lorry driver confronted her about the incident, she then reportedly told an ambulance driver to “f**k off.”
Luke Eastwood from Dartford, Kent, was delivering goods in his lorry when he turned his vehicle into Appleton Road, Eltham, London where he was stopped by a “rude” driver.
The lorry driver claims the woman, who was driving a silver Vauxhall Astra, asked him to reverse onto the main road, so she could continue her drive.
In a video taken by Luke yesterday, he sums up what happened and the problems it caused him.
Afterwards, he confronted her “non-aggressively” to explain why he can’t move to be met with obscenities before allegedly being rude to the amulance worker.
After further confrontation the driver eventually decided to move into the gap so the lorry driver could continue to drive.
In the short clip Luke pans his phone around to show people where he is and the problems that have been caused.
He can be heard saying: “So I’ve turned left — right. In a lorry, there we are, and this young lady is refusing to move. Let’s make her famous.”
The camera then looks into his right wing mirror where we can see the main road Luke is referring to and just below is a beige Fiat 500 parked on the side of the road, which has left Luke stuck in the middle.
He adds: “I can’t go anywhere because there is a main road, there is a car there and there is a nice big gap to pull in there and now we are causing a load of problems. Well done.”
Luke uploaded the video yesterday to social media captioned with: “Driver refusing to move into gap and let me through in my 18 tonne rigid lorry.
“She asked me to reverse onto a main road (illegal) then told an ambulance driver to F**K off. I’ve never heard so many obscene words used in 60 seconds so quickly before.
“She must be well educated to be able to do this, so proud. I mean what a lovely lady she was.”
One user posted: “Pathetic I would off squashed it into a mini”
Another said: “What a w**r. It’s not even their right of way.
One user added: “Just your usual selfish ugly munter wanting to make herself feel special. Try again love.”
Luke today said: “I believe this needs to be addressed as we come across this near enough every day, there seems to be a lack of respect and the driving standards over the last few years have declined.
“Lorry drivers are treated really badly, on a daily basis we get sworn at, brake tested, last minute exits and blocked in.
“I was turning left into this street and it was a blind tight turn. As I was driving an 18 tonne rigid lorry it requires me to take a wider swing.
“I also had a car on the corner which can be seen in the video and my tail end swing still in the main road behind me just about cleared the traffic island in which a pedestrian was crossing.”
He continued: “The driver purposely drove past the gap and jumped out of the car making obscene gestures and using foul language whilst refusing to move.
“After my video I did get out of my cab and approach the female non-aggressively and asked what her issue was.
“I was called more names and was asked why I couldn’t just reverse into the main road.
Luke explained to the driver of the Vauxhall Astra that the move she wanted him to execute was illegal and very dangerous.
However, she refused to listen to him, which led to an ambulance driver getting involved to politely ask her to move into the gap so they can “all get on with their day” and was met with swearing.
