Sandra Harrop sent us this picture along with the following explanation:

"My brother was straw carting in August from Chesterfield/Sheffield area to our farm near Bakewell, Derbyshire. Doing one load takes about 4.5 hours. It was his first load of the day and he was leaving the field at about 8:30 am.  He edged out of the field onto the road and from out of nowhere came a Ford Focus which hit the tractor side at about 40 mph. The impact split the tractor in half but all the car had was a dent in the front of the driver’s side, although there was some damage underneath.  The two occupants of the car got out, one called the golf course to tell them they would be late for their lesson and the other called the fire service because there was oil on the road.  My brother just had a few glass cuts on his hands where the window screen had come in on him.  He was more shocked about the damage to his tractor.Platts Harris, New Holland dealers in Darley Dale, were brilliant and sorted a courtesy tractor out for him straight away.  He now has a new New Holland but I don’t know which one. The broken tractor was brought back to our farm yard (shown in the photo) where it attracted loads of visitors who wanted to see what a “tractor split in two by a car” looked like."

''Focus which hit the tractor side at about 40 mph.'' But I would've thought the tractor would've won hands down...?!

Something similar  happened to my neighbour  in the 1970's. He was  coming home from potato harvesting with a brand new IH 574 (First day out, it had just had 5 hours on the clock )  pulling a Whitsed  harvester. It got hit by a car and it snapped the tractor in 2. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt .

Tractors break easily when hit by cars, especially loonies going like the earth is ending. Just be thankful no-one was hurt seriously.
