Motorist gets herself into a tight squeeze
This motorist managed the impossible after squeezing herself in between a barrier and a passing truck.
She found herself in the unexpected predicament after stopping for petrol and then trying to return to the main road in Germany.
35-year-old Gabriele Bayer, from Sittensen, apparently misjudged the amount of slip road she had available to her after a visit to a petrol station, which led to this strange predicament.
The hapless driver soon found her Renault saloon car sandwich between the huge truck and a crash barrier - or crush barrier, if you will.
A police officer at the scene believes it was lucky no one in the vehicle - which included various members of her family - was hurt in the incident.
'Her car was dragged for about 150 metres along the top of the barrier with herself, two children and her 78-year-old mother inside,' he said.
'They were all pretty lucky to walk away from it.'
