Written by on September 14, 2019

This is the heart-stopping moment a Land Rover nearly smashes into a Mercedes which suddenly pulls out into the road.

Lee Knight was driving in Lincoln Road North, Solihull, behind a single decker bus, when a Mercedes at a junction surged forward.

The driver of the Mercedes A Class braked just an inch or two away from the Land Rover but then pulled out.

Mr Knight had just picked up his son from a kick-boxing class and was on his way home to Shirley when the near-miss happened, just before 5.30pm on Wednesday.

He said: “I was quite annoyed that he never even acknowledged what he had done

“He was more interested in trying to get around me.

“If I didn’t reverse a foot or two he would have dragged the side of his car down my driver’s corner.

“You wouldn’t have got a sheet of A4 paper between my bumper and his door.

“In my opinion, he wasn’t going to stop – he would have carried on causing damage to both cars.

 

 
“The bus driver and van behind me we all just looked at each other and was like ‘what did that actually happen’.

“There was no way he would of moved me my Land Rover weighs 2.7 tons with everything in it, so it would have made a mess of his Mercedes.

He added: “I was going quite slowly, if I was a careless driver and was doing above 40 there’s no way i’d of missed him as my Discovery 2 is a big heavy tank.

“If I was doing, say, 50 it would have flipped his car over.”
