A woman is lucky to be alive after falling from a speeding car while filming herself on Snapchat.
A video showed the unnamed passenger hanging out the car window moments before she fell into a ‘live lane’ on junction six of the M25 in Surrey at around 1.30am on Saturday.
She posted a clip of the stunt with the caption: ‘I need to stop doing this 110mph [I’m going to] end up dead.’
She was treated at the scene by paramedics for minor injuries and no arrests were made.
In a post on Twitter, Surrey Roads Policing Unit said her reckless behaviour left them speechless and that it was only by luck she wasn’t killed or hurt.
The officers posted: ‘The front seat passenger was hanging out the car whilst filming a SnapChat video along the M25. She then fell out the car and into a live lane.
‘It is only by luck she wasn’t seriously injured or killed. #nowords.’
One Twitter user responded: ‘Should be made to pay for the closure of the road, made to pay the police and highways for dealing with the complete lunacy she has caused.’
Another wrote: ‘The worst thing about this is that had she been hit – the poor driver who hit her would have to live with that for the rest of their life. No one expects to be dodging human bodies on a motorway and an emergency stop may have caused a serious pile up and further loss of life.’
