Didn't realise it was this bad. Never seem so many smashed cars. 

Surely the council or whoever have a lot to answer for? Was there any salt spreading? 

I was sat in it for 3hrs, I was about 400 yards back. I hope everyone is ok but it didn’t look good. 3 or 4 ambulances, 2 fire engines, 6 or 7 police cars and one air ambulance.

If I hadn’t bought a pie from the Shell garage I would probably have been in it.

Pies saved my life today.

Never seen anything like it. Were the fritters not out?
What the fuck are fritters?

Predictive text. Gritters!


I don’t think the conditions were the problem.
Should have had the fritters out.

Fritters save lives!

Surely if the fritters had been out, the M55 wouldn't have resembled Destruction Derby?

Not driving to the conditions is driver error. 

Flash hailstorm, someone slams on the breaks, skids,causing everyone else to slam on. Then others having a good look while breaking. 

By an amazing coincidence it has been confirmed that every car that crashed had a women driver.

Make of that what you will.

‍must be, I can’t think of another other logical explanation.

Women drivers = Uber crash.
