Farage had been driving his Volvo V70 when the incident took place
The road was limited to two lanes because of roadworks, making the situation even more dangerous for the UKIP leader.
Police confirmed that the UKIP leader’s wheels had been tampered with
“I jumped over the wall as quickly as I bloody well could to get away from lorries and everything.”
Farage asked police not to pursue the investiagtion
But the UKIP leader did not call for police to look into the case, saying he didn’t want to “make anything of it”.
He added: “The French police and mechanics looked at it but I have made no formal report in this country.
The UKIP leader was forced to flee the motorway in front of oncoming traffic
The UKIP leader suffered broken ribs and bruised lungs after surviving a plane crash in 2010.
He was pulled from the crushed cockpit after an election banner wrapped itself around the light aircraft.
After receiving medical treatment he said: “I must be the luckiest man alive”
