Police ‘lost for words’ after woman tries to drive smashed up BMW home after crash
| Last updated
People have been left astounded by a social media post from the police sharing the state they found a woman's car in.
Granted, if you break down on the motorway it can be a real ball ache to have to wait for someone to come and help you. However, this woman didn't just break down, but had a full on collision and instead of calling for help, decided to power on and continue to her final destination.
The woman was apprehended by Merseyside Police's Roads Policing Unit, her vehicle in such a state officers were left 'lost for words'.
The unit has since taken to social media to speak out about the incident.
Sharing an image of the damaged vehicle, the caption read: "We were lost for words when we saw this being driven along Queens Drive!
"The driver had been in an RTC on the M6 and decided it was safe for her to continue her journey into Liverpool.
"She has been reported and the vehicle was recovered and prohibited."
People have since streamed into the comments in a divided response to the battered vehicle and in debate over the woman's decision to carry on driving to Liverpool.
One said: "Bit of t-cut and some duct tape that'll be as good as new."
Another took the opportunity to take a swing at BMW drivers. "It's a BMW Driver - They all think their cars are bulletproof anyway so," they wrote.
A third questioned: "So many questions raised from this picture , I guess the radiator was still intact, how could she see over the bonnet, was it not secure ???? I'm Speechless much like yourselves."
"Many cars are designed so that, in case of a front end accident, it is still capable of being driven, at least a few yards. And drivers can see through some bonnets that are as shown; on a farm, I once had to drive a car a bit with the bonnet all the way up, but, could still see!," another responded.
One stuck up for the driver: "Maybe the driver was in shock or felt it safer to be off the motorway? Might not be right but show some humility and understanding rather than shaming someone on line. Just another example showing how you need to work on your skills with the public."
A final resolved: "No need for the crusher she's already done the job, did the "optional indicators" still work?"
