    Eek Nearly another vectrauma for Spoons files

    Coming home tonight I was running quite late. Coming downthe outside lane of the M56 at Runcorn with nothing infront of me, I came round the corner and Serious debris in Lanes 2 and 3.... Slammed on and looked to bail left.....No chance so my only escape was to run onto the central reservation covered in glass and stones and more debris (Tarmac'd). But there wasn't enough room so eyes where closed as I slammed a 3 ft square box containing something and onto the loose debris on the central reservation.

    The box shattered under the car but thankfully not much else. The contents were soft and spread across the centrla reservation.

    Got home and theres some impact marks on the Bumper that could do with some attention. Haven't looked underneath yet or at the sills.

    It looked worse that it was....

    Looked like large chunks of tyre in Lane two and a few cars so no escape there and this Huge box that blocked most of lane 3...

    2 miles up the road someone (probably a God) switched off the lights and dumped a lake and a waterfall on the motorway....Visibility went from infintiy to the windscreen in 2 seconds!

    That did not do my shattered nerves any good either.

    Jeez, glad you're OK.

    Did you notice the dent in the armco a few miles after the M6? That was caused by a Silver Veccy C hitting it last week.
