LUCKY TO BE ALIVE.

   

 

Ammanford firemen called to make lorry safe by disconnecting the battery.

   

LUCKY TO BE ALIVE

That is what the driver said when he crawled put of the depths of a chaotic mass of twisted metal which a few minutes earlier was recognisable as a lorry.

That is what this dramatic picture, taken by Bill Neal a few seconds after Ammanford's most spectacular road crash had happened, clearly expresses.

LUCKY TO BE ALIVE

That is what the whole of Wales said when they heard details of the crash through the Press and Television.

LUCKY TO BE ALIVE is Mr. Arthur Wyn Williams, a scrap dealer of Brynmawr Lane , Ammanford, who was alone in the cab of the lorry when it crashed through a stone wall on the railway bridge at Parcyrhun, plunged down a 20-ft drop and came to rest upside down beside a railway line. Top of Page
