Lucky escape
« on: October 13, 2023, 06:23:50 AM »
I was several seconds behind a small blue car doing 70MPH on the motorway yesterday. Mid morning, clear blue skies, 12C.

One second she is travelling normally in the centre lane, suddenly veered 1/4 lane left, then 90 degrees right. She took out half a dozen central barriers before the restraint wires did their job and threw her 180 back across all 3 lanes and into the steep grass verge.

All 4 tyres off, every panel smashed and airbags fired. Still upright though. I pulled over and ran back expecting to find someone either needing help, or beyond it.

Amazingly, the door opened and a young lady stepped out as if nothing had happened. She remained calm, upright and was visually completely unharmed. She had the wherewithal to call 999, her boyfriend and kept away from the fast moving traffic. I left once the emergency services turned up.

She either has 9 lives, a guardian angel or is a Terminator!
