A man was driving his car down the tunnel, with his wife and my two children (17 and 15) to nan’s to wish her happy new year when the above man, in a stolen car, smashed into them on the passenger side. He knocked the car into the central reservation and because he was going so fast he also hit that then came back and smashed the car into the driver’s side forcing them into the wall of East India Dock Tunnel
