Had a car crash today whilst i was stationary...[:O]

I was at a t-junction.. and waiting there.. my car was slightly out by about 5-10cm over the line which is acceptable in any terms..

The road was clear both ways.. i looked left right left just before i even started moving and i got to look right again i was getting pulled by a massive truck all the way on to the grass as the metal bars that were on the side of the truck digged in to the bumper and pulled me along sideways [:eek:] to say i shat my pants was an understatement.. the whole bumper structure and all the metal holdin the under part of the body was ripped in two.. il post pics up tommorow.. but i personally think the car is heading for a write off [:(] but at least this gives me an excuse for a 1.8 t [:D] but doubt il get insured as i dunno if the guy will take liabilty for it as of yet..

Anyway boys and girls chat to everyone tommorow as im gonna go rest for a bit now

Yeah you are lucky to be posting about it. Having seen the "watch out for bikers" ad I look, look, look, look and look again!! Lol

Glad you're ok, and I think 10.15 cm's is fine. I see people hanging over the line by feet trying to force people to let them out! [:mad:]
