Ellie Goulding Comes To Aid Of Driver Who Was Pushed Sideways Down The Road By A Royal Mail Truck

Ellie Goulding is being praised on social media after intervening in an accident that happened in London on Tuesday (December 17).

In the video footage of the car accident, a Volkswagen GTi is shown being pushed down Western Avenue, A40, by a Royal Mail delivery truck in west London.

Ellie was one of the concerned drivers who came to the aid of the driver in the car.

In the video, the truck driver also claims they did not see the car at all and did not know it was there.

Ellie shared a bit of the incident on her Instagram Stories with fans, writing that “I can’t believe the first instinct of the other drivers who got out was to instantly start filming on their phones and shout abuse at the poor shocked driver, not even checking the other driver was okay.”

Speaking with BBC Radio 1 later on, she revealed she stepped in because “no-one was stopping. I think people were desperate to get to work. All these people were just driving on. We just drove up right next to it [the lorry] to be like ‘Mate, you’ve got a car on you!’”

The Royal Mail says it is investigating the crash. A spokesman added: “We are very concerned about this incident. We sincerely hope that no one was hurt. We are investigating as a matter of urgency.”
