Someone had a really lucky escape when they walked away unscathed from this wreck! Incidentally, on my way to this call I was surprised to see Spiderman running along the pavement, closely followed by four Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles and three grown men in tu-tus; at this point I remembered that there was a fun run taking place and thankfully I wasn’t hallucinating.
When I arrived I found the driver talking to the police, who had arrived just before me. He told me that his car had spun out of control after hitting rubbish that had been dumped or fallen from another vehicle on this fast road. After spinning a number of times on the wet road – he lost count of how many times – the car eventually came to rest when it struck a sign-post backwards. The sign-post, warning of a narrowing road ahead, can be seen poking out from the rear of the car. Thankfully the driver didn’t sustain any injuries and no other vehicles were involved.
