    Imagine the drivers shock if someone climbed out of the sunroof and appeared in front of the windscreen but talk about BROWN alert

    The lorry driver can't possibly have not known the car was there! The noise, the effect on the lorry, plus he seems to be going seriously quick...uber road rage?

    Could be road rage but on the motorway I bet you wouldn't hear it and with the weight and amount of torque of the truck I bet they wouldn't even notice the extra weight of a small car.

    It's amazing how smoothly the car is running sideways, I'd expect the tyres to go pretty quick! Perhaps it's fitted with Ditchfinder™ tyres, which obviously have zero grip in shear!

    I would have thought the tyres were shredded and she was sliding along on the rims? Still, she'll have had time to do her hair and makeup and send a few text messages to her mates.

    I still don't think it's real and some sort of stunt. There's no smoke coming from the tyres or anything...

    Apparently it was a woman driving the clio. Why try and brake? As if that's going to do anything?!

    I wonder if it will turn out to be a hoax, the road is wet but there's no tyre smoke or sparks from metal.

    I'd agree, but I'd expect some sparks at least!
