A Scots mum says her children were left ‘petrified’ from a horror crash after she lost control of her car when it hit a pothole.

Carly McLean was with her four children aged one, three, four, and 11, in Glasgow, when she ‘felt a thud and loud bang’ last month and ended up forced into metal barriers.

The incident happened when she just came off a roundabout near Shieldhall Road and Renfrew Road, near Braehead Shopping Centre. The family escaped with just head bumps and whiplash but the mum says it could have been much worse had she been driving faster, reports Glasgow Live.

Carly, who lives in Mosspark, said: “I felt a thud and a loud bang which was my tyre bursting. It threw my steering to the right and onto the gravel so when I put my foot on the brake my car just kept going into the barriers.

“All my kids were petrified. It all happened so fast and I didn’t have much time to think.

“I was concerned about my children and my own safety. I was trying to make sure that if anything was to happen then there was going to be minimal injury. I was trying to get the car to safely stop and get out of the way of other traffic.

“All my airbags were deployed and all I could think about were my kids. I jumped out of the car and tried to get them out. One of my kids was stuck in the car seat because the belts had locked.

“A taxi driver, with his wife and child, stopped and took my kids into their car and helped us. If I was going any faster or in a smaller car, the police said it could have been a completely different story.”
