Feel so tired to day after being in a 6 car pile up yesterday on the m3 going towards Winchester, the 2 lane bit thankfully.
Thankfully no one was injured, but many were in shock crying and shaking.
It started with a car being hit in the windscreen by a rather large pigeon, and ended with 6 smashed cars and one little white VW escaping being crushed between our huge heavy lexus and a big black transit van which was smashed forward by a bmw.
We’d managed to avoid hit the quashqui in front of us when DH saw the transit lurching down on the little VW behind us. He saw a gap in the inside lane and managed to get our car half way over so allowing the VW to slide along side us and the central crash barrier.
However the transit van was still being smashed towards everyone the driver tried to steer it into the inside lane but like us he didn’t manage to completely make it and hit the corner of our rear end and slammed us into the corner rear end of the Quashi and it rippled along everyone smashing into the car in front.
It was bizarre as there we all where all smashed up against each other with this single little white VW along side us untouched but able to open her doors because there was no room to open driver or passenager door.
It was so weird as suddenly our car was free just enough for DH to move it out of the line of smashed cars and drive it into the hard shoulder.
Not a single person was hurt, but the cars where just mangled I don’t know how those in the BMW walked from their car or the family with new baby and 8month pregnant lady were unharmed in their car as it was smashed the guy had to kick the door open to get them all out.
I was told I made the traffic stop seems I put out my hand and stound in the inside lane so everyone could run across to the safety of the hard shoulder.
I do kind of remember doing it as I remember looking at a car that had slowed down and looking at the driver, but it was like it was me watching someone else if you know what I mean.
I remember going along to everyone to see if they were alright thinking don’t forget your first aid training.
It all seems so unreal to day and I’m so so tired.
