Today on the way into Lincoln some dozy mare decides to hit me up the backside at about 35 mph ! The car in front of me decides to stop sharpish to let another car turn right infront of her (why, we were on a fast road for gos sake !!!). I managed to stop in time (good brakes on the laguna). Just I was counting my blessings, BANG ! The bird in the Ford Ka behind hit me and pushed me a bit and I touched the car in front, hitting her towbar.
In a nutshell the bumper was ripped off and the back of the car has been pushed under a bit. Not so much as to crease the rear quarter panels, but enough so that I cant get the boot shut. So its going to need a new bumper, back section (metal bit behind the bumper) and spare wheel well and front number plate ! And thats just my estimation.
Still at least I managed to drive away from it, The Ford Ka was a mess, leaving its coolant all over the road !
Im not a happy bunny, and to make it worse they gave me Citroen C1 as a coutersy car
! OMG ! Its so slow.
And to make things even worse, Im going to Inverness on Friday - well not in the bloody C1 Im not. I've hired a VW Passat Diesel (at least It will cost me less fuel to get there
) and will claim that back on the other persons insurance as an uninsured loss !
Ok - rant over.
