This is why you should leave your car after a breakdown

If you’ve broken down it’s tempting to stay in your vehicle and wait for recovery to help. After all, it’s warm and comfortable in there – why would you want to stand on the roadside, particularly in bad weather?

Fortunately, they had left the vehicle when a Ford Transit carrying logs slammed into the back of it, causing substantial damage.

The 20-year-old van driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries. We bet the passengers in the Picasso won’t consider staying in their car next time they breakdown.
