    WoW, glad to hear you are OK Andy – that must have been bl@@dy scary.

    Definite new pair of trousers after that.

    I always imagine these things happening in slow motion where you want to change what’s happening but you are just along for the ride.

    Many years ago on the M66 my Dad was travelling towards Bury to work, on the other carraigeway a lorry jack knifed and ploughed into the central reservation just as he was passing the same point in the fast lane. Luckily for him the lorry bounced back off the barrier..........Just goes to show you just never know

    Glad your okay mate !!

    Cheers

    Default scary

    not so many years ago i was driving in america on the i 10 when a jack handle was thrown up and over the freeway. it hit the bonnet of the car in front of me came over his roof and embedded itself in my screen under the rear veiw mirror knocking it off. i was driving an infinity qx45 and the handle came approx 6" through the screen and glass shards even made it into the boot. was like a scene from final destination. got some pics if i can find them.

    Must be something in the air! I saw a Civic doing a pirouette in front of a van this morning, thought it was coming through the barrier at me until it suddenly shot backwards collecting the van with an almighty bang.

    I must have been 10 to 15 minutes behind you. Saw the Focus buried backwards in the barrier. Looked bad. Driver still in car with medics talking to him. Debris all over the outside lane. There were 3 other cars involved.

    There were five crashes on the M56 last night. My 50 minute commute from Trafford Park to Chester took 2 hours. Still at least I got home.
