Hit a patch off mud on a country road......

slid.......

counter steered........

gained grip........

flipped.....

rolled twice into a ditch........



















He managed to climb out the passenger window with minor cuts and a few bits of glass left in his hand, not too happy though, as you can imagine :(

I managed to rip out his TID as mine was broken, so silver lining and all that LOL

love the police tape though, did he hit a police area or something or do they just shove it all over your crashed car these days?

DEFINITELY!!!!!

but something that most people dont realise... sunroofs increase the likelihood of a car being a write-off. if there's dimples either side of the sunroof on the roof, most garages will declare it a write-off because of the expense of fixing it... something i learnt from the main accident recovery company in Aberdeen after a friend crashed his clio. didnt look that bad, but the dimples were there at the sun roof and right enough, the chassis was twisted. apparently 99% of the time, dimples = twisted chassis :shocked:
