Rugby player ‘lucky to be alive’

A Welshpool rugby player has described the moment he faced every driver’s nightmare after his car rolled twice and finished on its roof on a busy main road.
Dan Stanley was driving to Shrewsbury Friday lunch time when his car lost control and flipped over twice, close to an accident black spot in Buttington.
Incredibly the 22 year-old escaped the wreck, suffering only from bumps and bruises that resulted in him wearing a neck brace.
“I am very lucky to be alive,” he said. “The car is a complete mess and thankfully nothing was coming in the other direction or it could have been a lot worse, not just for me.
“It is all very fuzzy. I was taking my time driving to Shrewsbury. I was in no rush so I wasn’t speeding. I approached the right hand corner near Borderstone and felt the rear end going so I tried to reposition and the next thing I knew I came around in the ambulance. It was a very lucky escape for me.”
Dan StanleyMr. Stanley (left) was treated for minor injuries on the scene before being fitted with a neck brace in hospital as a precaution. He is a student at Glyndwr University in Wrexham and, understandably, his new Facebook status reads ‘I am appreciating life each and every day at the moment’.
The lunch time accident caused considerable delays in both directions as emergency services cleared Mr. Stanley’s car from the road.
