Crash!


Oh dear!

Darling was involved in a car crash last wednesday... with one of those famous white vans that was speeding in order to get a couple of foreigners to the airport. Thank goodness no one was hurt... all Darling has is a bit of neck and shoulder stiffness and a bump on his side. (Phew!) And thankfully, a motorcyclist narrowly avoided being squished by the two skidding vehicles.

I shudder at the thought of what could have happened.

Brother was called out, and Mums went with him... I stayed at home getting jitterier with each passing minute. It was past 2am when they towed the car home - pretty much wrecked on the right side. Bonnet dented, doors crumpled, radiator broken, tires busted, front and rear lamps smashed... :S And we only bought it a few months ago...

So now the car is in the garage and the saga of haggling with the insurance company continues.

Darling has come out of the whole thing rather like a Highland yoghurt - shaken, but not stirred.

Geez glad he came out of that ok. Thats some mighty fine Karma, or Luck or whatever you want to call it, he has. Sympathies on the car but @ least everything thats important is unharmed.

Oh gosh thats terrible. Thankfully no one was hurt. Now tell me you know what a radiator looks like and I'm impressed. Although I'm still trying to picture bonnets dented and doors crumpled in one accident. It's a shame for car.

Oh and shaken not stirred.. highland yogurt indeed ;)

Thanks every one for all your support and comments... and the tags, of course! Will get to the tag asap.

Chaar : of course I know what a radiotor looks like! it's that big twisted sort of black thingy under the bonnet! All the damage is because it's a small car, that went into a spin so that the rear end also collided with the van. The undamages area on the right side is very small. :(

Agni : oh yes, seatbelts are a must...

PP : very funny... and sadly, we're with neither uncle. Asian Alliance is proving to be a pain. Just because a car is second hand doesn't mean it's scrap, right!
