A MOTHER said she was “still in shock” after only the quick-thinking actions of her partner avoided a head-on smash on a major Bradford road.
Rosie Caink, 20, of Cottingley, was being driven along Thornton Road by partner Matt Brown just after 6pm on Tuesday when they were forced to take evasive action after a car veered onto the wrong side of the road.
Miss Caink said the cause of the near-miss was the driver of the oncoming car, an Audi A5, looking down at his mobile phone rather than keeping his eyes on the road.


In dashcam footage of the incident the Audi can be seen crossing the centre line of the road, heading straight into oncoming traffic. Mr Brown manages to swerve out of the way at the last moment to avoid a collision, before quickly returning to the right side of the road.
Of his actions, she said: “He was 100 per cent looking at his phone, he had his head down and he didn’t look at the road once. He was completely oblivious about heading into oncoming traffic and made no attempt to swerve whatsoever.
“If Matt hadn’t swerved when he did, the outcome could have been extremely different. Thank god our one-year old daughter wasn’t in the car with us as that just doesn’t even bear thinking about. It shows how much looking at your phone takes your concentration away. A head-on collision could have had terrible consequences. I’m still in shock to be honest.”
