Tribute to wrong way M40 crash victims
THE sister of an 87-yearold woman who died after her partner drove a car and caravan for eight miles in the wrong direction has described them as a ‘happy couple’.
Driver John Norton, 80, who had recently recovered from cancer, and his partner Olive Howard took a wrong turn down the M40 northbound carriageway.
The fatal crash happened near Lewknor in Buckinghamshire – eight miles from where the dead couple lived in High Wycombe.
Miss Howard’s sister, Hazel Weatherill, said the collision was a “terrible accident”.
