Happy Friday shaun .... Have some whiplash! Someone took a dislike to my car ... Saw him coming too - horrible feeling that is.


Think im gonna have to go to minor injuries - im a fair bit of discomfort.... Looks like it could be close to a write off - boot floor is knackered, boot, rear spoiler, both rear wings, arches showing damage, petrol tank smelled like it was leaking, exhaust system bent and scratched, rear diffuser buggered .... and all the spray work .... reckon that could be RIP little clio - looked pretty sad for itself being taken away on the trailer ....photos gives you some idea how far he shunted me - just saw him coming and managed to steer into kerb rather than being thrown into oncoming traffic. I was stationary indicating into my road.

He's insured and it's his fault so that's one good thing! Dont really want car back now after impact like that - he didnt seem to break, no skidding at all - just drove straight into me at 30mph ish, maybe more I dont really know.

Was the car not driveable? Seems a bit of a shitty place to leave it to take pics.

Hopefully it all works out for you.

Pics at scene were very quickly taken for evidence - then pushed it into my road(which was where I was turning when he hit me) and took other pictures on my drive before tow van turned up.

No car is not drivable - stinks of petrol (think it's leaking)and boot will not close so it's not able to be locked - been recovered by insurance from my house to local garage

Had a similar accident myself. Traffic came to a stop and the guy behind me thought he would keep going. Seen him in my mirror and knew he was going to ram straight into my rear , yet he had more than enough space to stop in time.

I also had the same. Puma got rear ended by a woman who i'm sure was on her phone, but couldn't prove it.

Shit me up though as it was a 70mph road and I could hear her tyres screeching as she got nearer to me.

There was a 'lane' next to me which emergency services use to get through traffic, but rather than use that, she decided the back on a puma would be better.

I reckon they might fix that too. I expect you are sore after that though.

That doesn't look too bad, and no way was it a 30 mph impact maybe 10 to 15.

The guy admitted he didnt brake - there was no skid or any sign of him slowing before he hit me ... Its a 40mph stretch of road. Its unlikely he was travelling at 10-15mph is it not? He thought he was doing 30 when he hit me - My back tends to agree with him.

Tend to agree with Ben on this one. From those pics it looks no more than 20mph.
