Ellie Goulding among hero motorists seen rescuing driver pushed sideways by truck

Pop star Ellie Goulding was among hero motorists forced to block a postal truck as its driver unwittingly pushed a car sideways along one of London's busiest roads. Drivers shouted and blasted their horns as the hapless driver for UK courier company Royal Mail forced the Volkswagen car down the A40 dual carriageway near Perivale, North-West London this morning, local time. Following the incident Goulding took to Instagram and wrote: "I'm the one in the car checking if this guy was OK - craziest thing I've ever seen on the road.

"Everyone was driving past but my driver Guy stopped. Driver safe and look out for others everyone!!" The Starry Eyed singer later added how some people's first instincts were to film on their phones.

Loud screeching can be heard from the Volkswagen GTI in footage filmed by a passing motorist and later shared on social media. After the truck finally stops, one driver can be heard shouting: "What the f**k are you doing man?" The truck driver then looks out of his window and sees the stranded car on his bonnet and throws his hands in the air with disbelief.

The entire carriageway comes to a halt as motorists abandon their vehicles and rush to see if the man in the Volkswagen is OK. Miraculously, the driver appears unhurt and walks out of the vehicle. The Royal Mail truck driver climbed down from his cab and could be heard yelling: "I didn't see him!

I honestly didn't see him!" The cameraman argues with the Royal Mail worker as he opens the door of the Volkswagen and the car driver can be heard saying: "You spun me round." The Royal Mail driver then says: "Let's pull over and I can explain."

A Royal Mail spokesman told The Sun Online: "We are very concerned about this incident. We sincerely hope that no one was hurt. We are investigating as a matter of urgency."
