Video Captures Hapless Tourist Suffer ‘Austin Powers Moment’ As His BMW Gets Wedged In A Narrow Country Lane

This hapless tourist found himself in a real-life Austin Powers moment – when his BMW got wedged while performing a ‘100-point turn’ in a narrow country lane.

Matt Morris, 27, was driving near Penzance, Cornwall, when he found the silver car horizontally blocking the road.

He started videoing the driver as he shunted a few inches back and forth trying to do a U-turn in the tiny space.

The scene was reminiscent of a moment in ‘Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery’ where the secret agent becomes stuck trying to navigate his way around Dr Evil’s headquarters.

Matt said: “I work for Celtic Turf and was on the turf deliveries leaving St Buryan, heading for Crows-an-wra, when I met this BMW in the narrows.

“He pulled in, I could get past but just as I was about to go past he pulled forward nearly hitting the front of the lorry.

“He then performed this unusual manoeuvre in front of the lorry, and drove off in the other direction.”

Matt has since shared a video of the incident on Facebook and the footage had almost 150,000 views in the first 24 hours.
