OAP cheats death from heavy metal

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PET­RI­FIED pen­sioner cheated death af­ter 40 TONNES of crushed cars landed on top of her.

The 63-year-old was driv­ing her Vaux­hall Corsa in Brom­ley, Kent, when a lorry over­turned, tip­ping the metal on top of her car and across the road.

Amaz­ingly, once fire­fight­ers cut her out, she emerged un­scathed.

A po­lice spokesman said: “A tip­per lorry fully laden with crushed ve­hi­cles and other met­als turned over on to its side and the 40-tonne cargo tipped out on to the Vaux­hall Corsa.

“Some­what in­cred­i­bly, the crushed ve­hi­cles and metal were pulled from the car, and af­ter the roof of her ve­hi­cle was cut away, she was found with just a few scratches.”

The lorry driver and the woman were treated for mi­nor in­juries and shock at a hospi­tal in Or­p­ing­ton.
