Man Finds Out The Worst Imaginable News In Traffic
A British driver who caught up in a motorway crash discovered that the victim was his girlfriend.
Cristian Miculaiciuc was among thousands of people caught up in traffic cause by an early morning crash.
His girlfriend, Sorina Gheorghe, was travelling in a different vehicle that morning.
However, police called Cristian after he had been in the queue for an hour to inform him his girlfriend had died in a car crash, which he realised was just ahead of him.
Twenty-three-year-old Christian told Birmingham Live "When the accident happened I was stuck in the queue in the back for hours with the lorry having no power to help her or to get there.
"I got on the M5 about 9 am but it happened at 5.40am.
"I was doing deliveries that way. I only found it out it was her an hour into sitting in the queue."
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "On arrival, ambulance staff found a car that had suffered considerable damage.
"An off duty paramedic and bystanders were trying to assist the car driver.
"Unfortunately, despite all efforts, it was not possible to save her and she was confirmed dead at the scene.
"Two men in the 4x4 were assessed but were unhurt and were discharged at the scene.”
