A cyclist had a miraculous escape after being pinned under a car for half an hour.
Justin Futers, whose face was pressed up against the tarmac, said the shocking images of his ordeal, taken by a bystander, should serve as a warning to take care on the roads.
The 47-year-old painter and decorator told The Mirror: "My head and my face were scraping the tarmac so it was pretty close. I didn't shut my eyes and think 'this is it', although it could have been.
"The weight of the engine was right over my shoulders, there was a quarter of an inch between me and the rest of the car, it was that tight."
He was trapped under a blue Chevrolet after turning out of a junction in Worthing, West Sussex.
Passers-by came to help him but it was 30 minutes before emergency services managed to free him.
Witness Mike Brampton, who took the photos, told The Mail: "It is a miracle the cyclist survived let alone escaped with no broken bones.
"As I approached the car all I could see underneath was a figure dressed in red, and I feared the worst."Suggest a correction
