A66 Merc nearly looses control on ice

A66 between Bowes and Brough on the Cumbrian border, 14/2/12018.

Travelling along the A66 towards Cumbria when this blue Merc overtakes me. As you can see the driver was probably travelling too fast for the road conditions and as it passes me it hits a patch of ice and the back end starts to kick out.

Luckily the driver manages to keep control and carries on with their journey albeit back behind me with their tail between their legs and pride slightly dented.
