A driver has had a lucky escape after a crash on the A38 in Lichfield in the early hours of this morning (October 6).
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.”
