So... this seems all to familiar....

 

Some people who are on Facebook may of seen this already...

 

Guess who's had his CR-V written off? 

 

Yeah that's me...

Was driving back from Lincoln on Saturday night. Was minding my own business when a car travelling in the opposite direction attempted to overtake a vehicle...  on a solid white line on a brow of a blind hill....

 

That's the result. Yeah... that ain't going on the road again...

 

As for me? I'm completely ok. Various muscle pain and I think some nerve pain (gonna get that checked out tommorow) 

 

Yeah... I'm not kidding. I walked away and was cleared to go home by the ambulance crew. 

 

Oh... the missing wheel was 25mtrs behind the car.

I'd think it be a very different story if it was the civic...

Certainly built well.

Yeah, that's half a wheel and brake disk missing. Ripped the shockers in half. 

 

So yeah...  so this has met a particular grizzly end.

Holy crap mate! Glad you're okay. 

 

That's one broken CRV! It's done you proud keeping you safe like that. 

 

What's next? Are you fancying another? 

 

Cheers!

 

At the moment there's nothing else out there I fancy/like the look of. So yeah. I've got my eye on a couple of diesel Manuals but I'll go from there once I've got money to spend.

Bloody hell mate! Glad you're ok as that could have been so much worse. Unbelievable you walked away from that, looks severe to say the least.

As for the Muppet that caused it, what the hell was he thinking?  Solid white lines are there for a reason! And on the brow of a hill, where he can't see what's coming! Should be done for dangerous driving at the very least.

Sad to see the CRV like that mate, know from when you came up here with it it was a mint one. As said, it did well to protect you, and you're right, being in the civic would have had a worse outcome. It's lucky (if ant crash can be called lucky) that he didn't hit you head on going by the damage he's caused there, as it doesn't bear thinking about what the outcome of that would have been. Get yourself checked out fully mate, and any injuries sue the ass off him. Idiots like that need removed from the road permanently.

Out of interest, what car was he driving?

Hope you find a new car soon.

I can't say too much, as the police are still involved, but the car they were attempting to overtake didn't stop.....

 

She, was driving a similar aged Vauxhall vectra. 

 

After going back to the car to collect my stuff, I did have a closer look, and we reckon another inch overlap and it would of been a very different story.

Jesus! was it the cops who hit you?

I've heard of close calls mate, but an inch is deffo the closest! Deffo an angel watching over you bud! How you feeling now after it, still sore? Any other pains or aches developed? Must have been a hell of a fright when it happened.

Lol was talking to Phil on the phone the other day, wasn't the cops who hit him mate. I'd still be suing the ass off the driver who did collide with him though. Sheer stupidity overtaking like that.
