A Nigerian woman identified as Oma, has taken to micro-blogging platform, Twitter to share details of how she survived what would have been a fatal accident.
According to Oma who is a businesswoman, she was doing 110 on Aba road and when she tried to swerve past a pothole, she lost control of her steering wheel and her brakes stopped responding.
She noticed her car heading for a trailer and as it got dangerously close to the trailer, the Lagos-based entrepreneur could only scream the name of Jesus.
On opening her eyes, she found that her car had somehow done a 360 degrees turn so that the rear was squashed under the trailer while the front of the car faced road completely fine.
Read her story:
