Driving along into a nice long tightening but fast bend on the B4312 went into it and in the blind section of it a lorry doing a three point turn into an entrance, I hit the brakes and swerve knowing it was too late, somehow missed the front of the lorry and ended up in the hedge/ditch, car coming behind me wasn't so lucky and went straight into the lorries passenger side.

My cars survived but has damage to the passenger side sill and underside (passengers footwell has been pushed up slightly) + tracking is fubard, the other car is practically unrecognizable, it was a fiat ciquento now its a pile of scrap.

Sitting in the back of the police car all i could think was how did i miss it, police surveyed my skid marks and came to tell me that they had found that my passenger side locked before my drivers pulling me into the ditch, i was still there when they moved the remains of the fiat and they couldn't find any skidmarks, the driver didnt even have a chance to brake.

Ive been sent home from work after the police explained what happened to my manager. still shaking and trying to take in what happened also been told that the other driver is in serious condition and that the lorry driver has been taken in for questioning.

Bad news about the car mate - but it sounds like your lucky to be able to tell the tale !

Hope you get it sorted on his insurance etc. Unfortunatly with the older cars it only takes a scratch for them to write it off pale

p.s. I'd buy a Lottery ticket for wednesday if I were you Wink

unlucky mate, but bloody lucky at the same time!
gotta say though, it doesnt take a car crash to make a fiat cinquincento scrap! they were a pile of scrap when they left the factory!!!
hope everyone makes a full recovery.

cars back on the road, had to compress the spring to refit it properly, and did the tracking. but wont be driving it much now until i get the new suspension setup just in case. been told the other bloke is stable as the police have been round to check on my details as someone wrote down that it was a golf and not a polo. lol

I had been driving with my grill lamps on at one point due to the car in front of me not knowing what a white line is for, but these are cheap halfords fogs + they have 3000k HID in them.
