Default Too fast in heavy rain

I pulled a bloke out of his car this morning on me way to work.
He must of past us doing about 85 -90 aquaplaned then rolled and span and somersaulted for about 300 yards.
He was lucky the crash barrier went through the roof of the car.

The road and spot he lost it is known as where water lies about 2" deep on the road, he was on his way to work so should of known about this point of the road, been a few bad crashes at the same point.

I just wonder way somebody would risk their life knowing the conditions, and what the road is like etc.

Very lucky man.

We all drive to fast at times and it just makes you realise it could be the last puddle you drive through.

I feel great doing a good deed though.

I reckon most of it will just buff out with a decent wax.
He didn't even know where he was once he started to come round

Them Focus body parts fly off easy if you try and see if your car can cartwheel.

On a side note.

Martin Scorsese Vows To Pull Cast From Scotland.



Tonight ITV reports that International Film Director Martin Scorsese was left raging today when a member of the public ran past security and pulled one of the stunt drivers from a spectacular car crash scene.

Scorsese was further enraged when the aforementioned member of public starting handing out flyers to a bemused cast with url's to a Peugeot and a Scottish football forum.

Haven't got much sympathy for the geezer to be honest.

If he wants the 'thrill' of going at high speed in dangerous conditions - then that's his choice, in doing so he accepts the risks and consequences.

The only problem is when he involves an innocent motorist - that's utterly unforgiveable.

What a twonker.

That is a good point, I didn't mention the driver coming the other way down the dual carriageway had to swerve out of his way and could of lost it. That I don't want to think about as next in the firing line would of been me.
