Four of us from ICIS travelling to EPCA Berlin were in a head-on car crash on Saturday afternoon, but we walked away with only minor injuries. Nick, Ed, Dan and Barbara were in an airport taxi, a Mercedes estate car, which smashed head first at speed into an oncoming Skoda saloon car on the Kurfurstenstrasse, only minutes away from our conference hotel.
The four of us – three from the London editorial team, together with our European sales manager – watched as police and firefighters examined the wreckage of the cars and then towed them out of the way of the traffic.
Nick in the front seat was saved by the airbag.
“It’s lucky that we all had our seat belts on,” said Dan, as we counted our cuts and bruises, standing in the rain on the traffic island in the middle of firefighters, police and onlookers.
