Abbey Clancy has turned 'annoyingly safe driver' after car crash

March 9, 2012 - London

Abbey Clancy reveals that after she was nearly killed in a 2008 car crash she has changed her "reckless" ways on the road.

Clancy is a model and TV personality and the wife of England footballer Peter Crouch.

"I was driving from Peter's house in Cheshire to Liverpool in my Mini convertible. I swerved to avoid a bump. The car swung round and crashed into the central reservation. I ended up in the wrong lane, facing the oncoming traffic. My life flashed before me and I thought, 'I'm really going to die here'," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"I was in such shock that when people got to me they had to hold me down as I was shaking that much. Miraculously, I escaped without so much as a scratch or a bruise.

"Up to that point I was always a bit reckless on the roads. Now I've become one of those annoyingly safe drivers. I move at a snail's pace," she said.
