    Unhappy Oops

    Well as a few of you know already I've had a bit of a bump in the bora to cut a long story short somebody pulled out from a side road across both lanes at about 5mph to a 70mph stretch of dual carriage way and I hit him at 60mph the bora is looking like a total write off after I looked under Neath it today. The 3rd party has accepted liability and my insurance are recovering all costs from him. Also I managed to bag myself a possible fractured scaphoid bone (as the doctor says it wont show on an xray) in my right hand I'm in a splint for a week and will prob be in a cast next week.

    Got to wait till Monday to hear about the car but its looking like over £2000 worth of damage which is headlight wing indicator inner arch wheel tyre both doors windscreen back arch and the Sill is destroyed also its knocking like a good one and the steering wheel is a quarter turn to the left when the wheels are straight and what ever damage is done that I can't see.
