A woman whose BMW was destroyed in a pile-up on the motorway has been arrested by stunned police, after deciding the car was safe to drive 20 miles home.
Merseyside Police admitted their experienced officers were ‘lost to sight’ when they saw what was left of a white BMW driving down one of Liverpool’s busiest dual carriageways on Monday night.
When they stopped the driver on the city’s busy Queens Drive, she explained how she had previously been involved in a road traffic accident on the M6 motorway, more than 20 miles away.
The bonnet of the car remains heavily creased and obstructs the view of the windscreen, while the front looks partially detached.

But despite the condition of her car, she said she ‘decided it was safe’ and continued to drive home to Liverpool city centre.
Posting an image of the twisted wreckage of the car, the force’s traffic policing unit said she was arrested, the vehicle was recovered and immediately banned from the road – and she was reported.
They tweeted: ‘We were at a loss for words when we saw this rolling along Queens Drive!’
“The driver was in an RTC on the M6 and decided it was safe for her to continue her journey to Liverpool. It was reported and the vehicle was recovered and banned.
