A woman whose BMW was wrecked in motorway pile-up was stopped by stunned police, after she decided the car was safe to drive 20 miles home. 

Merseyside Police admitted their experienced officers were ‘lost for words’ when they saw what was left of the of a white BMW trundling down one of Liverpool’s busiest dual carriageways on Monday night.

When they stopped the woman driver on the city’s busy Queens Drive, she explained how she had earlier been involved in a road traffic accident on the M6 motorway, over 20 miles away.

The car’s bonnet was left heavily crumpled and obstructing the view of the windshield, while the front end appears to be partially detached.
