Shoreham Air Show: Plane crashes into Wedding Car

Usually wedding days act as incredible times capsules, being an event that people can reflect on with fond memories. However, for bride and groom Rebecca and Rajendran Asekaran this was not the case, with their wedding car being involved in a tragic accident on the A27 that took seven lives yesterday afternoon.

Where the driver of Luxury Daimler is yet to be confirmed what we do know is that a Hawker Hunter fighter jet smashed into the car, ripping off its roof and causing an almighty explosion.

The plane, which was meant to be part of an air show, plummeted onto the dual carriageway and burst into a huge ball of fire, causing the motorway to come to a standstill of horror. First hitting a Vauxhall vehicle the plane then continued into the wedding car which was travelling on the other side of the road heading towards Worthing.

A wedding day to remember

imageUnderstandably putting a dampener on the day the couple did their best to not let this tragic ordeal ruin their celebrations.

Rajendran said: ‘I looked on my iPhone and saw a picture of the carnage and could pick out the car that was meant to be here.’

‘We’re fine. The wedding wasn’t ruined, it was beautiful, it was lovely.’ Continued the bride.

The mother-of-the-bride said: ‘We knew there had been a crash. The wedding went ahead. The photographer took myself and the bridesmaids and my husband went with some of others.’

The Daimler

The Daimler is said to be fully insured, however, the firm are extremely saddened by the events that unfolded.

Jay Sherwin, who works at the firm, told the Sun: ‘I can confirm that it is one of our cars but at this stage I do not know what happened to the driver.

‘I am waiting to hear from his wife and the police. All I will tell you is that he is a lovely guy and has worked for the company for 20 years. He was on his way to pick up a bride just along the road from Shoreham.’

A hero at the scene

Terry Smith, who bravely risked his life to pull people from the vehicles stranded as flames has been referred to as both a ‘hero’ and ‘godsend’, facing danger head on in a strive to save lives.

He revealed just how close he was to this terrible incident saying: ‘I can’t believe I escaped with my life.

‘It seemed to come in at a really strange angle. He just didn’t have enough height. I was just thinking, this is coming too close, it’s not going to make it, it’s not going to make it.

At Limo Broker we are all extremely saddened by this news and would like to extend our condolences to everyone involved.
