Paraglider in Close Shave Over Motorway as Engine Fails

Occurred on August 15, 2020 / Tewkesbury, England

Info from Licensor: "I was driving in a car northbound on the M5 Motorway near Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire. We noticed that the paraglider was descending towards the live motorway. Traffic traveling north slowed and vehicles put on their hazard warning lights. The paraglider took evasive action and passed us to the right, it was then clear that his engine had stopped. He took a last-second turn to the left, just clearing trees at the side of the motorway before landing a few meters away in a field."
