A father has thanked motorists who stopped to help his 17-year-old son who crashed his car when swerving out of the way to avoid an animal.
It was not confirmed what the animal was but the driver believes it could have either been a deer or maybe even a dog.
The student tried to swerve out of the way and lost control of his vehicle. He left the road and ended up in a ditch.
Fortunately a passing motorist saw the accident and stopped to help the young boy.
He took him in to the warm of his van and phoned emergency services.
“[Name] was extremely lucky,” said the farther.
“He couldn’t get out of the vehicle and a young man stopped and helped him out through a broken window.
“The car he was driving – a Fiat Punto- is mine and was written off.
“We’re just delighted he’s ok though.”
