He says a BOY RACER had his front fogs and main beam Head lights on and he was totaly dazzled and next thing he knew there was a van parked up on the side of the road. He hit the brakes on skidded a few feet and went into the back of the parked van. Luckily there was no one in it !!
He hit the towbar on the van and the owner was not bothered, the only real damage being from a previous accident.
The photos show the damage, just front end, no damage to the wings, just Bumper and bonnet really.

The airbag did not go off because it was such a slow speed shunt, the pre tentioners went off and he says it left a smell like cordite?
We are waiting for my brother to get back to arrange a non insurance repair job, he only has TPFT ...
