  • Heck, that bit of road was dangerous last night, my partner and myself both stopped not long before as a car had lost control, spun a couple of times and ended up on in the hedge. A miracle it was only a one car incident, as there was black ice all over the road, and I wasn't sure if my boyfriends car or mine would stop. You'd think being a major road it would have been better gritted in the first place, and certainly after the accident I witnessed. The worrying thing is the driver who lost control can't have been doing more than 40 MPH, and there were still people whizzing past, regardless that two cars were stopped with hazard lights and one was in the hedge.
