The man, who is believed to be in his forties, had got out of his car after it broke down – just before another vehicle smashed into it after 6am. A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service said the man’s decision making had potentially saved his life. “We arrived to find a car on its roof that had crashed into the central reservation after colliding with a stationary car,” the spokesperson said. “The driver of the stationary car, which had broken down, had moved to a place of safety at the roadside, a decision which has potentially saved his life given the collision that followed.”
