The 28-year-old Spaniard had to leap out of the way as his stationary Porsche Carrera was in collision with a lorry as he stood at the side of the road, and missed the official flight to Germany.
Luque: "It was a bad day for me, but I count myself lucky that I was not hurt in the accident.
"I was out of the car at the time talking on my mobile phone and I saw the wagon coming and had to jump out of the way when I saw it was going to crash into my car.
"There was a lot of damage to the car, but it could have been worse for me if I had been sitting in it.
"Glenn Roeder wanted me to play in the game and, because I have not had many chances, I was determined to play.
"I was tired because of the long day on Wednesday and I had missed the training session with the rest of the team, but it was good to be involved.
"Overall, it was a good result and after taking 10 points from a possible 12, we have to be happy."
