Ursula and Sabina Eriksson are Swedish twin sisters (born in 1967) who came to national attention in the United Kingdom in May 2008 after a series of bizarre incidents on the M6 motorway and the subsequent murder of Glenn Hollinshead of Fenton, Staffordshire.
Everything began after their tour bus stopped on the M6 motorway, the twins left the bus and ran head first into oncoming traffic. Police responded to what they assumed were multiple fatalities but the women were unharmed. As officers attempted to understand the chaos, both twins regained consciousness and ran back into speeding cars.
Laying on one of Britain’s busiest motorways with compound fractures and head injuries, the sisters did the unthinkable. They fought off police, crossed the median and dared motorists to run them down again.
Ursula was eventually stopped when she was run over by a huge truck. Sabina followed seconds later, crashing head-on into a speeding sedan before being tossed over it, landing in the third lane of traffic. Their strength was described as “superhuman”. Though they were eventually detained, the series of bizarre events took another turn.
Sabina, who was processed by police in Stoke-on-Trent and later released, went on to meet a man, enter his home and stab him to death.
After murdering Glenn Hollinshead, Sabina fled the scene and was spotted on a road nearby repeatedly hitting herself over the head with it. She was convicted of manslaughter, sentenced to five years in prison and released in 2011.
- I have 3 questions and remember no drugs in their systems:
- How many people can be hit by multiple cars and repeatedly get back up?
- Where did they get the strength to individually fight off 4 police officers? 4 to 1 just to get them contained.
- How many people with this track record can murder someone and then get out of prison in 5 years?
