Witnesses described it as a scene from James Bond, and the woman in the car behind was treated for shock! My memories are of repeating "I am not going to die" to myself a hundred times as sparks, debris, and glass bounced around me with the screech of ripping metal and tarmac scraping on glass filling my ears. The car suddenly stopped and I leaped out thinking it was about to burst into flames. Cars and coaches were at a standstill around me, my shopping and filofax contents were blowing across the M3 and I suddenly realised quite what a lucky person I am. How on earth I am still here, didn't harm anyone or hit anything else I don't know.
My injuries were remarkably minor, with burns to my hand from the air bag, a 2 mm scratch on my face and a sore neck from the impact. The car is of course a write off and was undoubtedly the most damaged in the recovery yard.
I believe my guardian angel had something to do with this miraculous escape, but unquestionably the safety features built into the car and the strength of the roll-bar saved me from death or a fate worse than it. Guess what car I will be buying in the future, an MG, MGF soft-top.
