Everyone knows the Germans drive fast.
A tourist whose car broke down feared for his life after another motorist offered him a tow but then pulled him down a motorway at 100mph.
The tourist, 36, from Poland said he was amazed at the friendliness of the German after a man pulled over to offer him help.
"He offered to tow me to the next service station which was just a few miles down the road, and got out a rope from the boot of his car," the Polish man told police.
But just minutes after setting off, the German began to accelerate and dragged the hapless Pole down the busy A9 motorway in Thuringia, overtaking numerous cars and swapping lanes, at 100 mph.
He only stopped after crashing into a construction site that left both cars badly damaged.
A police spokesman said it had been a 'miracle' neither driver was injured in the crash, or that they had not crashed into any other vehicles on the motorway.
The man from Stendal has now been charged with dangerous driving and endangering lives.
