An error that could have been dramatic

The driver then panicked and took too long to turn his headlights back on. His vehicle left the road and one of its wheels was in the air. Obviously, in the dark, the driver was unable to react and his car was on its side in the ditch.

Miraculously, no injuries were reported to the motorist, who will remember this rather unusual accident for a long time. She was transported to the Auch hospital center to have check-ups, but everything was fine with her. It goes without saying that she is shocked after going through such an ordeal.

The alcohol test carried out by the Gers gendarmes showed that the driver was sober at the time of the incident. It was just a human error and ‘an inadvertently activated button which could have cost him a lot of money. One thing is certain, we won’t do it again!

Fortunately, the damage was only material, but this 40-year-old woman came close to disaster. And you ? Have you ever encountered this kind of problem for a moment?
