I was just celebrating my birthday, when I heard: "*acceleration noises with a gear change*, squealing tires, big bang" - Storytime in the description.
- Speed limit there changes from 50->60km/h (just after the end of our city area).
- Driver was some adult dude with his girlfriend in the passenger seat
- Apparently he “only braked”.
- It was raining a little.
- After 15 minutes there were 4 fire department cars, 2 ambulances and 1 police car on the scene - later a tow-truck arrived.
I heard loud acceleration noises including on gear change, followed by sharp braking and squealing tires (as in “omg I’m going sideways and I’m gonna crash better hit the brakes hard).
After hearing and seeing the car in the field I called the ambulance (his GF apparently was hurt a little).
The car apparently almost flipped over (hit the tree, hence the bent roof). BIG luck right there.
If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments. What do you think happened and how?
Even on my birthday, cars will find a way to get my attention.
As everyone is apparently okay, I can only imagine how angry this driver will be at himself for crashing this new Mercedes-Benz (E-class as assumed by my friend allride ). I am glad nobody seems to be hurt, we all can learn from this.
Drive and ride safe CTzens, with kind regards
