It is only by luck she wasn’t seriously injured or killed.#nowords
The woman fell from the car in between junction 6 and the Clacket Lane services at 1:30 am on Saturday.
After the accident, the woman was treated by paramedics at the scene. Thankfully, her injuries were not life-threatening or life-changing, a spokesperson for the force told BBC.
Surrey Police also shared the picture of the car with a caption and hashtag #NoWords, “It is only by luck she wasn't seriously injured or killed.”
Moreover, no arrests have been made in the incident. When a user asked about why she wasn’t arrested. Then, Roads Police Unit of Survey Police tweeted, “Nope just no necessity to arrest. We can’t just arrest people for fun. We have to have a necessity which we did not have for this. We knew who she was, where she lived, there will have been plenty of evidence and no person or property was likely to be at any further risk.”
Meanwhile, the tweet has garnered several aggressive responses over the irresponsible act of woman.

No arrests have been made. Is she the chief of police daughter or some civil servant's sister. Why wasnt she sent to court and made to do community service or arrested on the scene. Then others will think its ok to do it.— Lee Ban (@LeeBan85440057) September 20, 2020
