David Reid, 58, was driving an HGV on the A14 near Girton, Cambridgeshire at about 5pm on January 4, 2018, when he failed to notice stationary traffic ahead.
He ploughed into the back of a Peugeot Euro Taxi, crushing it against another HGV in front and subsequently causing a collision with three other vehicles.
