The fun park manager said: “She tried to avoid a caravan in the centre of the road and lost the back end of my old Landy.

“The caravan strayed into her side of the road, she tried desperately to avoid it and came off worst.

“Thank god it’s built like an old tank and kept her safe as she rolled over!

“The caravan didn’t stop and police said there could be a chance they didn’t realise.

“They also couldn’t believe that Em managed to find a way out of the truck herself.

“The ambulance man said he has been to the same place on the road several times in the last few months.

“I’d like to thank the two ladies who stopped to help my wife.

“They helped her get out of her truck and helped her get out of the field.

“They waited until the police and ambulance arrived too.

“Can’t thank you both enough, whoever you are.
