The Luckiest Driver In Essex?
Let’s return after our Christmas break with something positive from the BBC website:
M11 Christmas Eve crash driver has ‘incredible escape’
A driver had an “incredible escape” from serious injury after a car was “sliced” in two when it hit a sign on the M11, Essex Fire Service has said.
The vehicle left the road and collided with a large motorway sign at junction 9a near Great Chesterford at about 14:00 GMT on Tuesday.
No-one was trapped in the vehicle when fire crews from Cambridge, Newport and Saffron Walden arrived.
Firefighters gave first aid to two people at the scene.
Nigel Webb, Saffron Walden incident commander, said the impact had “effectively sliced the vehicle in half sending the front of the vehicle into the nearside bushes and the rear half onto the hard shoulder”.
He added that it was “simply an incredible escape for the driver”
