Car crash sparks marriage proposal

David Hobbs

Too much ice and snow can numb your brain but one for one couple emotions soon warmed up after escaping from a crash that could have cost them their lives.

The big freeze has caused chaos around Europe and for the German pair in this video a collision with a Polish lorry on the autobahn left them pinned against the central reservation.

Escaping with apparently no injuries, the bobble-hatted suitor got down on his knees to propose to his girlfriend who promptly agreed.

Perhaps having second thoughts she checked he wasn't suffering from shock. After all, he popped the question next to six lanes of rushing traffic!
