What a w*nker. Definitely deserved a chinning if he was laughing. What was that about?

How is writing off 4 cars and a van funny. Amazed he was sober though. This is the kind of thing that happens when someone is drunk.

Hope you can get it sorted one way or another Trig. Best bet is probably to use the cash from the payout, to get her fixed up yourself, once you buy it back. Hopefully you can get her sorted with the help of the guys on here, and not be too out of pocket!!

PS looking at the distance between the cars and the skidmarks, he was doing more like 50-60 i reckon.

There's no way he could have travelled that far from 30mph, unless he kept his foot to the floor on purpose

Did they drug test him too??
Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.

At that time of day, there is a lot more chance of him being tired than drunk or stoned.

Probably a work vehicle, not his own, which would explain why he didn't give a f*ck. :(

Tired, not paying attention to his speed or the environment around him.

Should be done with careless/dangerous driving IMO.

Or tortored to death.  >:(

Did they check his phone for the last time it was used ? If he was sober he could have been texting and the blown tyre was just from the impact ........... i feel your pain Diva and Trig - i would have decked him

Thats a 40mph hit. If it was hit faster none of those cars (especially the calibra) would still be in the road.

Thats unlucky though and if that had happened to me I'd understand and be calm until the guy laughed then I'd forget claiming through insurance and beat the guy close to death.

To be honest, his transit looks like a rusty wreck too!

Love to see the repair job on that calibra!

Btw don't laugh but the Astra normally lives round the corner somewhere but it's owners are away for the weekend so they parked outside their Daughters house up the road instead as they thought it would be safer there :D
