Darth Vader in St Helens?

Does this burnt-out truck which caused chaos on the M6 this week near St Helens remind you of anything?

Yep, it’s the Darth Vader death mask from the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.

One eagle-eyed St Helens Reporter reader spotted our pic of the truck and immediately noticed the resemblance between the wreckage of the cab and the twisted metal of Darth Vader’s face ...

He said: “I’m a massive Star Wars fan and I couldn’t believe it when I saw this picture of the truck - it could be only one thing. Thank goodness no one was hurt, though.”

What do you think? Does it bear an uncanny resemblance to the lord of darkness?
