Then I saw the guy stumbling up the middle lane. I slowed down & popped my hazards on shouted to him, he was Eastern European “I’ve had accident, need hospital’.

I look in my rear view mirror and there are cars coming in the distance, I said “right quick, get in”.

We drive off and he was acting a bit weird & spaced out!

Then seconds later blue flashing lights and I’m pulled over by the police. They ask the guy to get out and take him to their car. The officer looks back & says “we’ll take it from here Jason!”.
