Deaf Driver Clings To His Stolen Bmw

From: Sunday People - UK - Jun 18, 2006

A DEAF driver clung to the bonnet of his stolen luxury car for over half-a-mile as a car thief tried to shake him off.

Peter Broadbent, 64, yesterday described in sign language the terror ride on the hood of his new £32,000 BMW X3.

The thief sneaked up on Friday as the joiner closed his garage in Den-ton, Greater Manchester.

Mr Broadbent was driven over pavements to try to jolt him off. He was cut and bruised after being thrown clear.

He said: "It was dangerous and I'm lucky not to have died. I just wanted to stop him."
