How do you survive an accident like this?

A WOMAN narrowly cheated death when her car was FLATTENED by a lorry.

These dramatic pictures show just how close the 20-year-old came to being crushed.

But when she saw the lorry trailer toppling over she managed to take her seatbelt off and roll onto her side in the foetal position.

Her quick reactions saved her life as the lorry completely crushed her Nissan Micra.She then clambered out of the car through the passenger side, escaping with just a hand injury.

The dramatic incident happened today at 8.30am on the A50, Bypass Road, in Uttoxeter, Staffs.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Given the level of damage to the car, had she not had the presence of mind to act the way that she did, the level of injury would certainly have been serious if not worse.

“It is fair to say that her quick thinking probably saved her life.”

The man driving the lorry was uninjured but shaken by the accident.
